I hope everyone had a great start into the New Year. May this year also be filled with a lot of photography and fun!
I’m working on a heavy deadline at work and will be a little short with time to do a meetup in January. Nonetheless I have a couple of suggestions you may want to check out.
For those interested in old “things”, I recommend to stop by the Brooklyn Flea Market, which is housed in the old Williamsburg Savings Bank during the winter (until March).
The building is located on 1 Hanson Place, at the corner of Ashland Place, right across the Atlantic Avenue Shopping Center. Trains 2,3,4,5,N,Q,R,B,D to Atlantic Ave.
The Flea Market is open on Sat & Sun from 10am - 5pm. and spreads across two floors, the main hall and the basement, where you can check out the bank vault with it enormous vault doors. Taking pictures inside is generally allowed, but some of the vendors do not want pictures taken of their stuff. So be aware of some limits when you visit. But the building itself is a highlight of 1929 interior design and decoration. Bathrooms are located in the building as well.
Here is a link to the website with directions and a little bit more information.
For those interested in new and cold stuff, I recommend visiting the Ice Festival in Central Park on Saturday, January 19, from 12-3pm.
“Sip on hot chocolate while watching Okamoto Studio carve Belvedere Castle and its surrounding landscape from ice. Take tours with the Urban Park Rangers and learn how ice shaped the Park’s geologic features.”
I’m sure it will be crowded, so you may want to show up early.

Don’t stay home; go out and shoot! Have some fun and hot chocolate!
I cu soon. Verena
