Ditmas Park/ Midwood/ Flatbush

Big neighborhood sale in Brooklyn-burbia this weekend

Yes, that neighborhood. This place is actually a B&B.

There are stoop sales, and then there’s the annual collective basement purge in Victorian Flatbush, AKA Upstate Brooklyn (we made that up), AKA Brooklyn-burbia (we made that up too) AKA the place where people buy adorable Victorian houses then wind up so house poor that they have sell their children to replace the 200-year-old coal heater. (We didn’t make that up.) Find out what else they’re peddling at this weekend’s massive yard sale, so named because these people actually have yards. Our friends at Ditmas Park Corner helpfully explain the coordinates:

All nabes are conveniently located near the Q train, but better to bring your only friend with a car.
