Weekend Travel Idea: Williamsburg, Brooklyn
If you love food, art, architecture, and beautiful skylines, you’ll love the outdoor markets that happen in Williamsburg, Brooklyn each weekend.
Every Saturday there is Smorgasburg, which features over 50 food vendors selling everything from quinoa falafel, takoyaki balls from Japan, smoked meat sandwiches, the world’s best brisket , fried fish sandwiches, Brooklyn’s best donuts, noodles, organic smoothies, fresh brick oven pizzas, and fried anchovies by Bon Chovie. On Sundays you can delight in both food and fashion at Brooklyn Flea. Here you can once again eat fried anchovies, quinoa falafel, donuts, flavored ice pops, gourmet lemon squares, and Dough donuts and then browse the racks of connoisseurs of vintage clothing, bags, accessories, baby onesies, home decor, frames, watches, and shoes. So if you’re thinking about taking a weekend vacation sometime soon, consider Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There’s even a brand new hotel called Wythe Hotel opening up at Wythe and North 11th Street, just 4 blocks from Smorgasburg, Brooklyn Flea, and the East River Ferry! Stay at the Wythe Hotel, which is being opened by Two Trees Management and will feature a new farm-to-table restaurant by the owners of Marlow & Sons and Diner, called Reynards. I’m pretty sure if you’re one of the first people to stay at this hotel you’ll have cool hipster status for life. Wythe Hotel. xoxo
