“Great seasonal flea market and gorgeous historical district with beautiful brownstones.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

What a delightful trip to this lovely area of Brooklyn. Went to the fort Greene flea market that was outstanding. Walked all through the historic district with some of the finest examples of brownstone homes and tree lined streets. Found the area to be incredibly clean. Highly recommend an outing to fort Greene area while in Brooklyn

“Ft. Greene Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2011

On the way to Brownstoner's Brooklyn Flea I walked up DeKalb Avenue and discovered an Arts and Crafts Market on the far corner of Ft. Greene Park right next to a Farmer's Market. Turns out this Artisan Market is at this location every Saturday during Spring, Summer and Fall. I took a few photos which are attached. Serendipity in action. Happened to be a day that some Jazz Musicians, Including Spike Lee's brother, were performing here.

“Great Historic beautiful neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2009

Home to Pratt University and block after block of historic brownstones. Just walking around this part of the city is enough for an enjoyable experience. There are plenty of great restaurants and cheap cool bars. Fort green park is really nice.. maybe not as nice as prospect park but definitely worth checking out. A very diverse friendly community.
