View of Manhattan from Brooklyn
Now that we had explored a lot of Manhattan, we decided on day 11 to meet up with some friends in Brooklyn. First we ate sushi in Chinatown and stopped for cupcakes and iced coffee at Molly’s Cupcakes in Greenwich Village. Then we met up with our friend Matt in Brooklyn to see another side of NYC. First we explored Williamsburg, walking around and stopping at the park to look at the view of Manhattan and the Williamsburg Bridge. Matt also took us to Five Leaves where I of course ordered a Brooklyn beer, because it was only fitting. For dinner we headed to Bushwick to meet Danny at Arepera Guacuco and I tried arepas for the first time! After dinner we met up with my friend Meredith for drinks in Bushwick. When we go back to New York in September we’ll be seeing a bit more of Brooklyn!
