Williamsburg the heart of Brooklyn?
Williamsburg has grown out of the slum to this new hipster area. The area is growing. They are building very nice apartments as in the same time they are old restaurants and pub left to enjoy.
From Manhattan you can take the East river side boat from 34th street and get of at Williamsburg North or South (or you can continue on the boat ride if you want that). I got of at W.North and walked around with my future parents in-law. Our first stop was “Bakeri” a norwegian coffee place with has the cutest little garden. On our way to out next stop we passed by “Konditori” but there cinnamon buns was expensive and flat. We continued our journey to the popular “White Hotel”, we wanted to see the view from the rooftop but the rooftop opens at 5 pm. WE stopped for lunch at a restaurant called “Julliette”. Juliette is famous for the spicy lamb burgers. After all this fun adventure we took the boat back to the busy city.
We sat and eat lunch on the cute little rooftop
On 44th st between 7th and 8 Ave near the popular Time Square you can find the Jekyll and Hide Bar and restaurant. A place with lots of history, entertainment, delicious food and scary things going on. They even have tasty drinks as “The kiss of death” and “Coconut poison” (non-alcoholic drink). A place with lots of entertainment around you, on the walls, on the stage, they are every, walking around you. If you ever go to this restaurant you have to try to find the toilettes or at least try to find the lady’s if you can.
The food is typical American food. You can choose from pizza, pasta, sandwiches, salads etc. They even have delicious desserts which I highly recommend.
There is this secret about this place but I can not tell you, you have visited the place for me to tell….

When touristing in NY you have to visit China Town. A town with lots of attitude, culture, craziness, tasty food etc. I was there with V and it was a experience and very fun. It almost felt like you are in China, even the signs are in Chinese. Well there is a lot to see and you have to experience it yourself.

The High Line or the abandoned railway. The name says it all. Instead of taking a stroll in the park, you can know take a stroll at the High Line. It is near the Hudson River and you can feel the nice breeze on a hot summer day. It is all so near the Chelsea Piers so if you feel being active you can abandoned the railway and go rock climbing instead. If you google “abandoned railway in nyc” you will get the interesting history about it. Here are some pics from when I was there with V.
Hade some delicious ice cream at the High Line.
