I hopped over to the Big Apple this past Friday. My intention and sole purpose was to spend some time in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to check out some shops , good eats, and drinks. Before jumping on the L train to head over to Brooklyn, I spent some time in Soho to have an early glass of rose and some light shopping at my favorite places like Topshop and Anna Sui. I can be a creature of habit when it comes to my NY trips; from having to visit Cafeteria in Chelsea to having the homemade guac at Rosa Mexicano to shopping at my favorite places, I somewhat have a routine. So this time around, trying out a new stomping ground was uber exciting for me. I’ve only been to Brooklyn a handful of times, so I wanted to hang out mainly in the Williamsburg area for a real first-time experience.
My time there was short – having only about 7 hours to really spend in Williamsburg since I didn’t arrive til about 4:30. The temperatures felt like 120 degrees, so mix that with tons of walking and sight seeing and you get a tired tourist with toes of rubber. I wanted to visit a French Bistro called Juliette (more to come on this place) so my friend and I went there for some yummy food. We walked by the waterfront, ate ice cream, visited a crepe spot, a Mexican spot, and about 2 to 3 roof top places. Overall, Brooklyn is very different from Manhattan. It’s more laid back with more hipsters and creative types walking the streets. I will certainly visit again, but in the meantime, check out some of my pictures from my day trip.
