About Me
My name is Marie, and I am a visual storyteller. I love living in Brooklyn, New York because I can eat food from all over the world without paying for a plane ticket.
You have to go to
No matter what time of year, you have to go to Prospect Park. In the winter, watch the sledders fly down the hills. In the spring or fall, the blossoms or foliage are stunning. In the summer, eat at Smorgasburg, a popular food-stall marketplace.
Here's one fun activity you can do
First time visitors to Brooklyn should walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. Not only is it a great opportunity to take pictures, but the park at the end of the bridge in Brooklyn also holds a lot of great activities like Jane's C.
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
Brooklyn Heights is one of my favorite neighborhoods to stroll around and photograph, because it's one of the oldest. The homes, called brownstones, and their tiny gardens are immaculately maintained.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
You should get a slice of pizza! Skip the lines and try Roberta's in Bushwick, Fornino at Brooklyn Bridge Park, or Emily in Clinton Hill for a great pie.
Here's a doable bucket list for you to do in one day
1. Start the day with a nice brunch in a neighborhood like Prospect Heights.
2. Travel to Prospect Park and take a stroll around the pond.
3. Hop on the bus or rent a Citi Bike and head down to Cobble Hill for lunch.
4. From there, wander up to Brooklyn Heights and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
5. End the day with a sunset walk over the Brooklyn Bridge.
My extra insider tip for you is
When you swipe your MTA card on a local bus or at a subway station, there's a free transfer rule (local bus-to-subway, subway-to-local bus or local bus-to-local bus) valid within two hours of the time you paid your fare. This makes it easier and a bit cheaper to cover a lot of ground in one day.
