It’s a bit meta to reblog a New York Times story about oneself, but such is the predicament that yesterday’s piece by Liz Robbins, “Kings of a Small-Batch Empire in Brooklyn,” puts us in. It was obviously a huge honor and hugely satisfying to have the paper of record do such a deep dive into the various business endeavors that we’ve spent the past few years working on. (And to note for the record that it all started right here with this blog!) While the ink about 1000 Dean Street and the Brooklyn Flea beer hall and food court was more than welcome, it was particularly cool to have a journalist look at The Flea and Smorgasburg as the business incubators that they really are. There is such entrepreneurial spirit in Brooklyn right now and it’s incredibly satisfying to be playing a part in it. Interested, as always, in everyone else’s reaction.
