Park Slope residents aren’t the only people concerned with noise as new venues arrive in Brooklyn. According to the Brooklyn Paper, a free flea market planned for a waterfront lot off of West Street on weekend nights from June to October is already causing headaches for Greenpoint neighbors. The venue, named the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, is slated to include a 20-foot stage featuring local bands, vendors selling antiques, clothing and food, and a beer garden, of particular concern to residents, remaining open until 2 a.m. “It seems clear that the idea does not have any real local support and would have a serious impact on the surrounding neighborhood,” said Steve Levin, a council member from Greenpoint. The unused lot is currently owned by B&H Photo, but will be leased by Aaron Brodou, organizer of the event. [Brooklyn Paper]
