Wandering Brooklyn

After staying over in Brooklyn for two nights I managed to cover some great spaces between DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg.

The streets of DUMBO are romantically gritty with the rumble of the trains over Manhattan Bridge adding a sensory experience like no other.

The cobblestone streets are a reminder of the areas history. From DUMBO, I walked through Brooklyn Bridge Park which was just lovely. There was so much lush green space, areas for dogs and sculptures throughout. The views of the Manhattan skyline was amazing. I even saw the Statue of Liberty!

The park was lush all the way along the water’s edge and people were using the track to run, as well as just to relax and take in the views.

Brooklyn Heights streets (like all that I have seen so far) were filled with grand buildings and big trees.

It was a great place to start my holiday in Brooklyn, before heading to Manhattan. The next post will show you the first day we had in Manhattan. Time sure is flying and there is still so much to try and see!

And here’s some pics from the industrial warehouse that I stayed in, which was an artists loft with three over creative people, complete with a stuffed toy panda pit!
