While we didn’t really get the best vibe from Manhattan, we definitely felt very much at home in Brooklyn. The pace was a bit slower, the people a lot friendlier, and the restaurants, bars, and stores independent and more affordable.
It’s totally our kind of place.
(*NOTE: We’re also fully aware that this is exactly what Brooklyn wants us to think, so take all this with a grain of salt … After all, we were only here for a day, and visited only two of New York’s five boroughs during our two days in the city.)
‘Cuz it’s the B-the-R-the-O-the-O-K-L-Y-N…’
We spent the morning taking photos at Coney Island before heading to Bushwick (aka ‘East Williamsburg’) for lunch.
(Megan’s recommendation was doubled-down on by another friend who works at Food & Wine, so Roberta’s was a no-brainer.)
