1 Day in Brooklyn

I pride myself on being a true New Yorker, and yet, in my 21 years of life, I have never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Friday, August 2nd, I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time EVER! It was not my first time in Brooklyn, according to my parents, but the first time I could remember. 
It was a very hot day for a lot of walking, but a very fun day!

My friends and I walked the mile-long bridge straight into Dumbo and started exploring.

We took the famous picture on Washington Street, with the Manhattan Bridge in the background. You cannot miss this photo spot! Just walk towards the water once you get off the bridge and you will be right there!

We then walked to Brooklyn Bridge Park, walked around, sat, talked and took in the beautiful views of all the water taxis and the Manhattan skyline.

We had dinner at Bijon’s. It was quite a walk from the bridge, not the best planning on my part, but the delicious food made up for it.
It was a really cool neighborhood spot and we got to see lots of Brooklynites in passing.

Brooklyn is way different from Manhattan. For a minute, I forgot I was even in New York City. It is not like Queens or any of the other boroughs either.
It was relaxed, as relaxed as New York could be, and peaceful.
I really loved Brooklyn, and I would love to go back and explore more!
