One of my favourite things about traveling to a new city is the taxi ride between the airport and the hotel, and New York didn’t disappoint. Miguel and I turned smiling to each other – it was completely as we had imagined, with the laddered fire escapes and yellow school buses.
This time, rather than staying in a hotel, we thought we’d try out Airbnb (so much cheaper!) and found ourselves sharing an apartment in Brooklyn, meaning we were immediately thrown in to the New York way of life. Upon arrival, we set down our bags and headed out to take a look around our new neighbourhood.
Brooklyn has that East London thing (that I still don’t really get) of feeling very poor in certain areas, whilst littered with hip bars and places to eat. I think it was at night when we saw it come to life, with people buzzing around these trendy hotspots. We’re not really a ‘hip bar’ kind of couple, and instead opted for a slice of pizza and an early night (jetlag sucks), ready for a day of pounding the Manhattan streets.
P.S – huge thank you to everyone who recommended things to do and place to eat, we would have been lost without you! Can’t wait to share all the good food we ate! Mmmmm x
