Breezy Brooklyn

Manhattan is great but for me Brooklyn is New York. Brooklyn is all effortless NYC cool. I loved all of it. It’s got everything a tourist like me is after, fab views (hello Brooklyn Bridge and East River Parks), great coffee shops (Australian naturally), amazing food, wine bars, and interesting suburbs (with cool names like Dumbo, Cobble Hill and RAMBO!!!) for quality wanders. I’m not quite sure why so many tourists struggle to get there, there are 3 different bridges spanning the East River to choose from or you can hop on the trusty L train.

Being a Sydney girl, I love bridges and the Brooklyn Bridge is a fave.
