A day in Brooklyn
2 minute reading time
Last month, my brother came to visit me. I was staying at NYC at the time, and took this as a perfect opportunity to explore around. The target on Saturday, Brooklyn.
Beginning from April through Octoboer, Smorgasburg Williamsburg offers a variety of different food stalls starting in the morning. We decided to start the day there with a late breakfast.
Afterwards, we walked around Williamsburg and visited a few shops.
We then took the train to “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass” (DUMBO). There we stumbled upon an art fair, and took some pictures on the way to the Brooklyn bridge.

We walked all the way to the beginning of the prominade on Tillary street to get onto the Brooklyn bridge. From where we started this resulted in a lot of unnecessary walking. If I was to do this again, I would’ve climbed the staircase located in the underpass of Washington street and Prospect street.
After crossing the bridge and reaching our 20k steps for the day, we found the nearest bench in city hall park and looked up places to eat. While doing so, we saw a biker run over the wings of a pigeon. At least for the pigeon, a little girl fed it Pringles afterwards.
We ended up eating at a HotPot place in the Manhattan Chinatown nearby. It’s harder to justify shared buffet style restaurants like unlimited hot pot or sushi when it’s just Clare and I. So how can we let go of that chance? The food turned out great and we’re looking out for the next excuse to eat it again.
