Whenever I am in L.A., I think it is my favorite city ever. When I am in New York, I am convinced it is the cooles city in the world. It is hard to compare the two when you ask me, but right now I am 100% in love with New York. Probably because that is where I am at right now.
One of my favorite ways to travel, is when I get to return to places I already “know”. New York is amongst those (so is L.A.). It being my 5th visit, I have seen most of the sights and finally feel like I can somewhat grasp the city. Meaning: in the sense that I know which areas I like the best, where my favorite places to eat are and where I want to spend most of my time. However, one spot that had always been missing on my personal map of exploration in New York was Brooklyn. That’s why, after coffee and an 8am SoulCycle class followed my an almond butter acai bowl, the first thing on the agenda was catching a subway over to Brooklyn to wander through Williamsburg, grab some lunch at “Sunday in Brooklyn“, head over to Dumbo and then back to Manhattan over the Manhattan Bridge by foot. In contrast to the famous (and very touristy) Brooklyn Bridge, a Manhattan Bridge walk is much less crowded and offers and amazing view of Brooklyn Bridge while bringing you right to Canal Street and Chinatown.
