    D2 New York - Brooklyn

    July 6, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Impressions of New York so far:

    - Brooklyn is rad. With its old school
    Industrial architecture and views of both downtown and uptown Manhattan.
    - It feels just like the movies depict it. It’s beautiful and quirky.
    - It’s expensive - think queen vic night market prices but in US dollars. So a grilled pork panini (delicious!) cost 13 usd.
    - Their public transport system has a lot of character, energy and life. Aka there’s plenty of homeless people singing, selling Oreos and water and speaking to themselves.
    - Customer service (even when tipping isn’t necessary) is excellent. This may be influenced by the tipping culture however.

    TOP 3 Highlights of today:

    1. Brooklyn - wandering the Williamsburg and Dumbo neighbourhoods. Eating at Smorgasburg and getting custom made jewellery...for Anthony
    2. Brooklyn Bridge - walking with the masses across the wooden boardwalk while dodging local hoons on bicycles.
    3. REI - Kate had her first introduction to this US icon. We broke the budget, and it’s only day two...
