Anyone who grew up on the Nassau County/Queens border in the 80′s remembers Fleaport. Definitely not just your average flea market by the airport, Fleaport was a an experience, a world where people came together over great food, colorful vendors and the spirit of discovery.
Between 1981 and into the 21st century, Fleaport was a place where everyone was welcome and nobody walked away empty-handed. Shopping was fun and wild, and you were just as likely to come home with a date as a new pair of boots. Now filmmakers are invited to share their original vision of this unique market.
