In the vault of a decommissioned bank (Brooklyn/NYC, USA)
– “Show me the money!”
If you’re tempted to yell this well-known phrase uttered by characters in the 1996 film Jerry Maguire, while entering the decommissioned vault of the Brooklyn Flea Market, just don’t. Unless you really found THE hidden gem, which then, makes this relatively acceptable.
What was once the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower, is now one of New York City’s preeminent spot to score vintage furniture, décor, clothing and handmade goods. Even the vault which once hold millions of dollars in crispy banknotes and gold bars, has been transformed into an additional space to the flea market.
And if you don’t walk away with the perfect art deco vanity, you will leave with stars in your eyes: besides its impressive vault, this historic landmark has limestone and marble interiors, intricate mosaics and is a marvel in itself. A must.
