At the end of May I met up with some girlfriends that
I've known for over a century, for a little reunion weekend
in Manhattan. Before everyone got there,
another friend and I decided to go out a little earlier
to see some other friends and take in the sights
in Brooklyn. I was excited since I've never been to Brooklyn
on my countless trips to Manhattan. Well that's a half lie, I have
walked the Brooklyn Bridge to go to Grimaldi's, but that doesn't count in my opinion.
Brooklyn did not disappoint. It was much bigger than I
had expected. For some reason in my mind Brooklyn was
a borough of cute brownstones and that's it.
Boy was I wrong. Yes there are the quaint brownstone neighborhoods,
but Brooklyn is also a decent sized city with lots of hustle and bustle.
We spend a couple days there, and I am itching to go back again
to explore more. But I feel like I got a decent tasting.
Great atmosphere, amazing food, and stunning views of
