Nexus Flea returns tomorrow in a new (nearby) location

The next East Village Flea (aka Nexus Flea) happens tomorrow (Saturday!) — in a new location! Actually, two locations: The more than 20 local artists and merchants will be selling their wares from the northwest and southeast corners of First Avenue at Second Street.

Organizers said that the Parks Department will no longer let them hold the event on First Street and First Avenue at Peretz Square ... and their request for a permit was denied.

The flea market started on April 3 this year (relive that one here!) ... and they're running every other Saturday for now from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Glad to hear it's back. It had become a nice social scene.

Nothing spells community like being denied a permit from the Parks Dept for our local junkie park!

So they won’t let someone from the community organize a neat and clean event but every day until 2am they let at least 15 bums sell garbage on blankets?!
