The idea was to get a glimpse inside the grandiose interior of what used to be the headquarters of Williamsburg Savings Bank. Little did we know that walking past the entrance doors, we would fall into a real-life Narnia – and we didn’t even need a closet. For over the cold winter months Winter Brooklyn Flea finds shelter under the vaulted ceilings of One Hanson Place; and its food market, the irresistible Smorgasburg, takes place in the underground vault. That’s where we followed our nose, first. Then went on for a long stroll to the flea market, to tantalize the rest of our senses.
