NEW YORK (AP) - The Brooklyn Flea, a popular New York summer tourist destination, is looking for a new home after complaints that it’s taking up too much space in its Williamsburg home.

The flea market’s partner food-festival, Smorgasburg, will remain in East River State Park, which has become too congested for both events.

Flea and Smorgasburg co-founder Eric Demby told the New York Post (https://nyp.st/2pHz36H ) that there clearly needed to be a change in venue for the Flea, and that he expects to reopen the flea market at a new location by summer’s end.

The market runs every Saturday from April to October and draws thousands. A neighbor told the Post that he was glad it was moving, as it was “Ubers, bumper to bumper” every Saturday.
