Brooklyn Heights Promenade
San Francisco Handshake
Why not to make a quick visit to Brooklyn if you are in New York? It has a lot of attractions and a particular vibe that can make you wish to live there. It was, until 1898 an independent city and now it's a borough of New York, but you will feel in a completely different place. You can reach it by subway, or, if you are cooler than this, by boat or walking through the bridge. Getting there is what matters.
You'll surely fall in love for the view of Manhattan in the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, an oasis in the middle of the concrete jungle. Over there you can also visit the museum, founded in 1895 to be the largest in the world, but remains only as the second largest in New York. In the Botanic Garden, it's almost impossible to believe the calmness and peace in there, and if you want some action, the amusement parks in the peninsula of Coney Island will shake your bones out.
In the Brooklyn Academy of Music, you can see plays, hear music, watch films, all full of innovation. More music and innovation you can see at the Atlantic Antic street festival, the number one in New York, with many entertainment stages, over 600 vendors, pony rides, inflatable games, and a lot of food. If you are a lover of music, you have to listen to Brooklyn Tabernacle, a choir of 240 voices that won many awards. And after this busy day, you can just relax in the Prospect Park, take a walk in the zoo and go to the Museum of Art.
At night, the borough won't disappoint you. It offers alternatives for every taste, from classical jazz, futuristic karaoke bars, indie rock spots, hipster bowling to Russian nightclub scene. Brooklyn is also a place to try new cocktails. Just open your mind and drink some Carondelet (gin, honey, sea salt and lime) or San Francisco Handshake (thyme-infused gin, a dash of Fernet-Branca, St. Germain and lemon juice), for sure they will blow your mind!
If you are going to New York, don't forget to try some Brooklyn experience. The art, a lot of good music, some relaxing parks, outstanding views and for sure a bit of surprise are waiting for you!
