Things to do while visiting Brooklyn, NY
Last weekend I had the chance to hang out with some of my friends in Brooklyn! I never thought I would say this, but Brooklyn has become one of my favorite places...so much so that the past couple of times I visited I didn't make it to Manhattan. I know, I know, crazy! This time around I wanted to meet up with some really creative friends to try and convince them to become a part of our team. It worked!
I stayed with my dear friend from high school, Sam. Her apartment is all sorts of cozy! I met Sam when I was 16 in a photography class at school. She had crazy hair and her energy totally drew me in. Sam continued her photography career and eventually went to film school, she is super talented and has traveled to some really cool places. I wanted her to be a part of this project so I recruited her to be a guest blogger on here and talk about her travel experiences. Make sure you stay tuned to read some of Sam's adventures in the future.
But First, Food
We started my first day early in the city by hitting up Little Mo's in Bushwick for a light breakfast. I had the most amazing savory scone, and chai latte. We walked around the neighborhood taking it all in.
Who Said double Breakfast was not a thing?
We had brunch/lunch aBushwickt Dear , where we met up with my (new-ish) friend Jenn, who recently moved to New York. It's really important to me to keep in touch with friends who move away. Especially super sweet lady friends! The food here was delicious, highly recommend.
After brunch, we made our way to Williamsburg. I love this neighborhood, I had been here a couple of summers ago and remembered the perfect little vintage textile store.
If you are ever in New York you HAVE to stop by Stella Dallas, a double brick and mortar for all things vintage.
They have two stores, one for clothes and one for home/textiles. This place is heaven.
Pricing is really decent, you can find some really great pieces here. Anything from vintage flags to large vintage kilim rugs in all colors.
I think I spent a good 2 hours in here. Worth it!
