Little taste of Brooklyn and NYC

We arrived to Brooklyn at around 11:30 pm, our airbnb was in a really interesting area. It was on top of what looked like a dry cleaning company. Very industrial but with a cool view of the city skyline!img_0317

Loved seeing this vintage taxi!img_0325

We went to Cafe Luluc for breakfast and they did not disappoint! We walked right in but about 10 / 15 minutes after we were seated there was a line up of folks waiting for a table.img_0327

The pancakes were by far the highlight of the meal but who doesn’t love fries for breakfast!img_0331

The Brooklyn Bridge park is really really cool! Calling it a park does not do it justice at all! They have soccer fields, sand volleyball courts, basketball courts and a floating food forest. The city planners in San Francisco should take note! We need something like this.img_0558img_0344img_0349img_0358img_0362

If there is any doubt in your mind where to get pizza – go to Grimaldi’s  if the line is long, which it probably will be note that you can walk right in and place a to go order and within 10 minutes you will have an amazing pizza to enjoy somewhere outside… I would much rather sit outside than in a two hundred year old building! img_0364

The pizza is SO fresh … a large might not be enough!img_0367

Love walking across the Brooklyn Bridge…over the course of this day we walked over 10 miles… I like to call it Urban Hiking! After all the eating and drinking – this is much needed!img_0374

A few stops on Wall Street… img_0389img_0391

We will never forget where we were on September 11, 2001 and being able to take a moment here at the memorials and pay homage to all the lives affected is an experience that everyone should take part in. The museum is really thought provoking and I definelty reccomend going in and spending time there.img_0394

The Garret is a fun little speakeasy situation that you can only get to by going through the Five Guys on the corner. It is pretty hard to imagine that this gem is up there but it is and its definitely worth hitting. img_0396img_0397img_0400

Anywhere that has Mezcal cocktails is already winning but this place sure knows how to make them right. Fun atmosphere until a birthday party showed up and really overtook the small space. Would definelty go back and try some of the other fun cocktails!img_0405

A stroll through Washington Square Park to take some time between eating and drinking! img_0406

My favorite unexpected spot in NYC this trip was by far McSorley’s Old Ale House.  On a rainy Saturday afternoon it was full but the service was amazing, I could easily spend a day there, drinking two steins at a time.img_0409img_0415

They have two options here, light and dark. Order one and you get two steins. This is also a must hit for me… if you like beer that is!img_0417

Waiting for Death & Co. to open at 6 pm… fun drinks and great appetizers. Highly reccomend the chicken sliders! If you aren’t a cocktail person you are going to purchase a very expensive beer…img_0419

Always love going to Big Gay Ice Cream Shop in NYC – so decadent and not necessary but really good!img_0427

We finished the night at Comedy Cellar  – when in NYC you must go to a Comedy Show. I do reccomend making reservations and arriving early… you don’t want to be in the very front ( maybe you do…) but you also don’t want to be in the very back. It is definelty a goldielocks type situation.
