I recently escaped to NYC (solo) for a few meetings, and spent an inspiring 48 hours in Brooklyn. I was lucky enough to stay at a good friend’s place while she was in Paris (le sigh), and got to know a new (and lovely) neighborhood. Believe it or not, of all the times I’ve been to New York in my life, I’d never walked the Brooklyn Bridge – I can check that off my list! I’m quite proud of myself, considering I could see through the planks and fought my fear of heights big time. (I was the crazy person talking and humming to myself along the way to stay calm). I wandered around Prospect Heights, Williamsburg, Cobble Hill, + Dumbo…stopping at almost every coffee shop and consuming copious amounts of espresso. Brooklyn is rich with inspiration–I would live there in a heartbeat. I’m excited to return with the family sometime soon! If you’re planning a visit, you can see my adventures + day trip suggestions over on steller!
