Brooklyn {NY Part I}

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
^^We all showed up in stripes. True sign of good friends ;)

^^Perfect weather, sunny skies and no humidity. We lucked out.

^^The views of the city from the promenade were unreal.

  1. Gorgeous! I'm not as familiar with Brooklyn as Manhattan either, but my few ventures over to that side have always been such peaceful breaks from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan!
