In terms of design I saw a lot of "rust" treatment for the exteriorson commercial and residential properties. Intentionally done, I might add and some of it done really well. I was taken with two examples particularly (see below pics), the two door tavern and shelter pizza (from the guys behind Rosarito fish shack). Both executed very differently but very striking industrial style. I was quite taken with the vintage Americana vibe at shelter pizza.
I had so much fun at the Williamsburg flea Market, whilst I didn’t come away with anything for my home I saw some great kids toy and fashion vintage. Plus the food there was soooo good. I can personally vouch for dough donuts. Puts the markets I go to here in the UK to serious shame. AND the biggest plus point of all was the killer view of Manhattan.
