I don’t usually pay much attention to destination guides, especially for New York because there’s always so much to do and I’ve been there so many times. I’ve got a long list of favorite things to do when I’m in the city and I have to make an effort to not try to do too much and to leave open the opportunity to discover something new. I happened to come across the Conway Confidential New York City travel guide from American Airlines and travel writer Paula Conway and learned about the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene. So if you’re looking for some new ideas for your next NYC visit, read through her travel advice. I’m glad I did, I found something new that I might not have otherwise discovered and the Brooklyn Flea was great.
