Dekalb Market


Actually, that’s probably not fair since it opened recently (this summer?) but basically, all the stores are located in old shipping containers. As of right now, there are about 10 vendors.

Before we even got there, our friend Pati was complaining about horrible, overpriced fish tacos. $9.50 for two fish tacos? Loco. Anyway, when we got there, I wanted something sweet so ST and I stopped by a bakery. A cupcake for me and whoopie pie for him. Both were mediocre. My cupcake was still a bit frozen. I don’t remember the name, but it was right by one of the entrances.

We probably won’t bother visiting again. Vendors aren’t friendly, there’s too many hipsters and it’s way overpriced.

Since we still had a few hours to hang, we walked to DUMBO and peeped a volleyball game. The walk over was not pretty.

But we did see the Manhattan skyline. Nice but not exciting.

We also saw a trailer that reminded ST of the one he grew up in.

Then, we headed over to the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Things have changed a lot since last year. There are roped-off patches of grass big enough for running, playing, and sunbathing. Side note: We saw this weirdo who was topless and wearing a lime green thong, sunbathing a mere 10 feet from a kid’s birthday party.

There was even a cute little playground. Side note: ST said people would think I was a creep for taking pictures of a playground. Really?

There was also a burrito cart and a Blue Marble ice cream cart. We also saw a wedding party take their photos and we discussed politics, zombie apocalypse, and regular apocalypse.

Anyway, DUMBO is just okay. If we’re bored, we can hang out there for a day, I guess.
