There are so many things I want to do in you, Paris.
Especially in the summer.
But you are crazy expensive.
Brooklyn's best alternative to the incredible Parisian Marché aux Puces in Clignancourt is the Brooklyn Flea which spends its Sundays on the Williamsburg waterfront (East River Waterfront btw North 6 and 7 St.) Spend a couple of hours looking for treasures and pointing to little objets and saying with your best French accent, "Ah, c'est très Brooklyn!"
Then, head over to Maison Premiere (298 Bedford Ave btwn South 1st and Grand St) and indulge in some absinthe and oysters. Just like the French do!
Finally, read Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky and feel incredibly, tragically sad.
Just, whatever you do, DON'T listen to any Phoenix. Or you really might want to kill yourself.
Then again, that might just be me.
