Many will be away but for those who can’t afford the getaway to the Hamptons there are still some things to do around town and I actually like it better because it won’t be as crowded in the city with all the trust funders on holiday.

On Saturday you can hit the Greenpoint Avenue Festival, Queens Boulevard to 44th Street, Sunnyside and probably have enough time to swing by the Sunnyside Gardens Park Annual Memorial Day Fair, rain date May 25, rides, arts & crafts, BBQ, games, silent auction & 50/50, rummage & bake sale, music & dance stage, 48-21 39th Ave.; 718.672.1555. – Queens Gazette

You can also check out the McCarren Park Farmers Market at Lorimer St. & Driggs Avenue, inside park entrance from 8am – 3pm.

Sunday is the annual Greenpoint Memorial Day Parade – Starts at 519 Leonard St between Driggs and Nassau Aves, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (718-349-6890). Subway: G to Nassau Ave. 8:30am. – Time Out

Then maybe venture to The Brooklyn Flea which has been having a hugely successful inaugural season! And the buzz is the food is amazing, too.


Shopping is always a good idea, too. Dalaga is having a 10% off sale on shorts and shoes for those on their mailing list (send an email to to sign-up!) starting tomorrow and running through June 1st. Plus, cocktails and moisturizer will be served!

And out of the immediate hood there is a huge to-do going on with the Brooklyn Bridge’s 125th Birthday starting tonight. There’s a ton of stuff to keep you occupied all weekend long. – Brooklyn Based
