I had the pleasure of spending the day with Linda, who has already made her rounds in SF, and now we get her fun and spunk in NYC. We had plans of hitting up the Brooklyn Bridge before the light got too harsh, but we just couldn't beat the sun. Linda, I commend you for getting me up at 6:45 AM this morning! I will seriously have to try this early rising thing more often. :P
After walking across the bridge, we made our way to Carroll Gardens, a neighborhood that I hadn't explored yet (let's face it - the only place in Brooklyn I know how to get to without getting lost is Blue Bottle). Very cute eateries here (including our first stop at Smith Canteen). Definitely filing this area under places I'd want to live outside of Manhattan.
Part one of our adventures below.
The light in Prime Meats was to die for. Thanks to Cindy for the rec! The best part about getting an early start was that it was barely noon by the time we finished lunch. The rest of our day was spent eating more and window shopping. Pictures to come.
