This is well outside my Brooklyn neighborhood, but it's not on many visitor's radars, so I think it's worth pointing out. It's a wonderful, weekly food market where you can eat street food from anywhere: Tibet to Taiwan to Portugal to Romania to Greece to Jamaica. It attracts an equally diverse, laid-back crowd. It's quite a trek, but worth it!

In the summer it's wonderful to bike along cycle routes around the Navy Yard to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The views at night are amazing! You can actually bike from the house as far as Red Hook, almost all of it on bike lanes.
