I always feel so overwhelmed by New York. But this conversation got me so excited to go This friend of mine Anderson Davis is so dear to me and is the perfect person to take us around Brooklyn. He is passionate about his city and gives us good inside scoop.
Brooklyn Bridge Park
Take the ferry up to Williamsburg
Ten Foot Single by Stella Dallas – vintage clothing, shoes & more.
Bird – Indie boutique
Heatonist – Compact shop featuring choice, brand-name hot sauces in various heat levels, plus a tasting bar.
River Deli (Italian) – quintessential Brooklyn cafe
Al Di La (Italian) – classic Italian for lunch – then hit Prospect Park!
Lucali (Pizza) – get there at 5:45 pm for THE BEST PIZZA IN NEW YORK!
Ugly Baby (Thai) – Northern Thai – super authentic
Find an EXHIBIT that you want to see at a museum. Don’t try to see it all!
For example, see the Vagina Plates at the Brooklyn Museum
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Obviously see a show!
TDF – shows you what tickets are available for half price at the TKTS booth in Times Square
Need help picking one out? Ask yourself:
1. Do I have kids with me? See The Lion King or Wicked or Harry Potter
2. Musical or play?
3. Fun or serious?
4. What gets good reviews?
GET outta here! Go! And BE amongst the city, the people, the food, the art.
And have the best day.
