brooklyn-city-guideI had planned on doing just one post for my New York guide but after hours of editing the photos and reducing the numbers of photos from like 100 to 20 I decided it would be best to break it into manageable chunks! First up Brooklyn!
Ive visited Manhattan three times now over the years but this was my first visit to Brooklyn. The first main way to Brooklyn is to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge to an area called DUMBO. The second way is by subway. We got the L subway from Union Square and in ten minutes we were in the middle of Williamsburg.

antique-flea-market-nycI fell in love with this area - the streets were filled with quirky tiny boutiques selling everything from vintage clothing & vinyl, art prints, to home-made pestos and jams. It had a much more laid back relaxed feel to it compared to Manhattan. I loved the creative atmosphere and the place was full of little markets and stalls selling independent designer jewellery, cards and homewares.

brooklyn-travel-blogger-guiMy advice would be to wander around Bedford Avenue; this is were the subway stop is and this street is full of hidden gems of shops, restaurants and bars. Sometimes a random explore is the best way to get to grips with an area!

We headed to Williamsburg Artists & Fleas a massive indoor warehouse style building filled with vendors selling all kinds of amazing things! I went straight for the unusual hand made gold jewellery and a stand selling old books that had been made into clocks.

Be sure not to eat before hand and then you can sample a number of tasty treats including red velvet cupcakes, barbecued corn on the cob and ramen noodle burgers. You name it they had it! Unfortunately in the good weather it tends packed with people & I was unable to get good photos of the stalls that weren't just the backs of peoples heads!

This was all we had time for in one day but other recommendations include the Brooklyn Brewery which do free tours on the weekend! Also the Wythe Hotel roof bar for drinks and an amazing view of the city!

Hope you guys liked my little guide to Brooklyn! Im going to try and do the whole of Manhattan in one post but we'll see if that works!

  1. Your photos are beautiful! I have never been to New York but I think I would definitely set aside some time in a trip to explore beyond Manhattan - and the flea market at Williamsburg looks perfect for wandering/exploring/buying unique treasures, whilst the Smorgasburg food market sounds like the stuff of my personal dreams! :)
