Yes, it's true. Despite growing up in Westchester County, working in Manhattan for three summers during college and visiting Manhattan countless times for cultural events, I never went to Brooklyn.
Until my trip last weekend... and I enjoyed it all. The flea markets on Saturday and the Brooklyn Museum on Sunday. And then getting back to Manhattan to meet a friend for drinks...
So I took the 2 train, transferred to the 4 train, transferred to the L train and took the A train (as the song goes) to Columbus Circle. Met my buddy for drinks at the Smith. And though they were upper Westside price drinks, they were good....
For the finale, met another friend at Piccolo Angelo (on Jane Street), the best Italian restaurant in my opinion and had a delicious penne pasta with marinara sauce...
Oh, yes, it was quite a trip...
P.S. I met Ryan Greer, the owner/designer of FLUX bags at Brooklyn Flea... he did a collab with Anthropologie... beautiful pieces and such a creative, friendly young man...
