Best of Brooklyn

Feb 20, 2008

I love NYC.  It’s an absolutely amazing city.  And after a handful of visits, I think I finally have a decent grasp on how to make my way around Manhattan via the subway. 

But one part of NYC that I’ve explored very little of is Brooklyn.  I’ve walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, eaten pizza at Grimaldi’s, had ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory and even rode the F train to Coney Island once.  But after reading the Best of Brooklyn posts over at the 1 Stop Over in Brooklyn blog, I’m ready to explore it again when I’m there in April.  I can’t wait! 

Check out the Best of Brooklyn.

PS – Any Brooklyn readers out there wanna chime in on the BEST OF list?

    I’ve lived in bklyn for four years and love it! The Promenade offers views of Manhattan that are unparalleled. The church in Brooklyn Heights, Plymouth Church, was a place where all kinds of famous folks made speeches such as Henry Ward Beecher, Mark Twain, Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglas, and Charles Dickens. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered an early version of his “I Have a Dream” speech at Plymouth Church. I’ve been to a church service there. Then there is Smith Street. A lot of Manhattan chefs have abandoned the little island across the river for Smith Street. The food on Smith is amazing. I could go on…

    I recommend walking (or riding the N train) across the Manhattan Bridge – although lesser known than the BK bridge it provides a wonderful view (on most days) of lower Manhattan or Brooklyn – depending which way you’re headed.
    Also, you haven’t experienced Brooklyn unless you walk the streets and see the truly diverse population that lives here. Never in my life have I lived in a more diverse area – i guess you get that when you come from the midwest.
    Also – I highly recommend going to Williamsburg – considered the trendiest of the boroughs – it is definitely a treat – I like going to Sea ( – makes me feel like I belong there there Williamsburg – lower BK is fine for me, though.
