If you’re visiting New York, you might be told to “check out Smorgasburg” on the weekends. It was really cool the first time I went because you have many of the hottest vendors all in one place (but hang onto your wallets because you will want to try a little here and there!). It’s definitely an experience where you should bring friends or family along to try everything. I mean everything. 🙂
Before, you could only find Smorgasburg in Williamsburg and the Brooklyn Bridge pier, but two new locations opened up last weekend: Coney Island in Brooklyn, and Seaport, Manhattan. Plus, both of them are opened daily. I had a chance to pop by the opening weekend with some good friends and shot some pictures along the way. Seaport has completely transformed since it was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy but its historic roots haven’t changed and is definitely worth visiting this summer! Here are a couple of highlights:
Smorgasburg featuring vendors such as Lumpia Shack, Milk Truck, Ramen Burger, and Red Hook Lobster Pound.
Though it can get crowded, there are tons of seating in the area. It won’t be too hard to find one!
Not in the mood to eat? There are a lot of small boutiques and shops as well as restaurants. I passed by these unique stores and advertisements!
This store called Brother Vellies Outpost, makes handcrafted shoes & sandals from South Africa, Kenya & Morocco. I just loved the decor and how cute the children’s shoes were!
I’m super excited to see what else there is to come. Seaport has come a long way since the mall and UNO days at the pier!
