New York and America (part 13)

(Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, Part 12)

On Saturday, after moving, I went to Fort Greene, to the flea market. This one was much better than the one on Sundays at Dumbo; larger and more interesting vendors, and interesting people, too.




I explored Bed-Stuy a bit, then wandered around Bushwick afterwards; in the afternoon, I stumbled upon a sort of moving sale, or what was left of it. Looking back now, the guy was clearly a hoarder because his apartment was just so full of everything. It was fascinating to see, though.

I hung out with my friend whom I had the Airbnb with, and we had a good talk. In the evening I went by a weird art show in Bushwick but I didn't stay long; it was fascinating for a while, but not really my thing ultimately. one last time to (probably) some Couchsurfing thing to the bar next to my Airbnb to socialize a bit.

On Sunday I went to a Yoga class I've found online. It was very different from what I was used to; I don't remember much other than I didn't really enjoy it. Afterwards I went and explored more of Bushwick. It was interesting to see this neighborhood, with a significant Puerto Rican minority, that was slowly but surely gentrifying. I stopped by the Bushwick flea market, which turned out to be a really small operation. I did run into a pretty good Japanese band that was busking there playing jazz and took their picture.


Overall, it was a good weekend, and I really got to like this part of New York. If I would (more like, if I could) ever move there, I'd probably find a place in or around Bushwick.

I had five more days in New York, and I still had a lot more to see (there's always a lot more to see.)
