New York, New York!! (2)

Egg new york

Here is the second part of our adventures in New York (part 1 here), snapshots of a sunny day spent on our bikes wandering in NYC’s hippest boroughs Brooklyn and Williamsburg. I wish we had more time to discover this part of the city as it was great to leave Manhattan madness and explore new shores.  So we started the day from our hotel, originally we had planned to brunch at Clinton Street Baking Company (one of the best brunch in New York we’ve been told) but the waiting line got us discouraged.  We thus crossed the East River on the Williamsburg bridge (picture 2) in order to find a good place to eat in the area and start our journey.

Below are some of the pictures I took that day as well as some cool addresses. Enjoy lovelies!

We had their unbelievably delicious ‘Rothko eggs’ and pancakes with marble syrup and pears. A delight! If the line is too long, you can go to their little sister Parish Hall just a couple of streets away. It looked really cool as well.

The Wythe hotel and its restaurant Reynards (4&5): Originally we had though to maybe stay at the Wythe hotel. I know rooms are pretty and the restaurant has a good reputation.

Pilgrim Surf+Supply shop (6&7): A really cool shop for these men (slightly expensive though)

Mast Chocolate Brothers (8&9): We literally stumbled upon this shop. Inside, lots of people and an amazingly delicious smell of cacao coming right from their atelier (which is totally part of the store). Chocolate bars in a cute packaging, cookies, truffles, t-shirts, books and cakes. Loved it!

Apolis (10&11): Another cool shop for men.

Brooklyn Flea: Inside a beautiful old bank you’ll find vintage pieces, furniture and food vendors. Quite nice!

We then had to rush to reach and cross the Brooklyn bridge (1) at sunset. What an amazing view and feeling to end that day we had…

    J’ai testé le wythe Hotel en septembre! C’était parfait … Chambre incroyable avec plein de détails qui font la différence!
    Et le must, même si vous ne logez pas dans l’hotel, c’est d’aller boire un verre sur leur rooftop qui offre une vue éblouissante sur Manhattan 😉 … Et pour vous y emmener un ascenseur qui vaut le détour également!

    Throughout the awesome scheme of things you’ll secure an A just for effort. Where you misplaced me was first in your details. You know, people say, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more accurate at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you just what exactly did deliver the results. Your writing is certainly extremely engaging and that is possibly the reason why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, whilst I can certainly see the jumps in reason you make, I am not necessarily certain of exactly how you appear to connect your details which produce the actual final result. For now I shall subscribe to your point however hope in the future you actually link your dots much better.
