Begin your day at Bredford Avenue

To enjoy your time in Brooklyn, you should start off by visiting Bredford Avenue, particularly Teddy’s Bar & Grilles, a joint that is known for its amazing weekend brunch menu. You will enjoy the salty-and-sweet French Toast sandwich, which is stuffed with ham and gruyere. You can also request to have spicy Eggs Guajillo. Later, have fun burning off calories while walking to East River State Park to get a glimpse of the sweeping views and opportunities that the Manhattan skyline offers.

Your afternoon at Greenpoint

Having spent your day snapping pictures, you should head to Kent Avenue, after which you will pass Franklin before you finally arrive at Greenpoint Avenue, which will lead you into the Greenpoint Historic District. This region offers strong charm that is hidden in its quiet tree-lined streets. It offers an old-world European feel and a thriving polish community that enhances the beauty of the region. There are lots of things to see including cultural preservations and culinary ideas you might never have come across. The cuisine is also unique and meant to take you back in time when creativity in the kitchen came to life.

Williamsburg after dark

Williamsburg was once considered the child of Brooklyn because of its counterculture, but it has passed this gentrification. However, it still retains its character and visitors will be fascinated by the dense concentrations of modern bars, boutiques and restaurants. Getting around Williamsburg is easy and there is enough security. The welcome you are offered triggers you to feel at home and allows you to enjoy the convivial creativity personality that is written all over the city.

Drinks and food are in plenty because of the many restaurants and bars on site that you can choose from. For those who visit the city for the first time, the uniqueness of the food and drinks is striking and leaves them bewildered to learn the art so preserved by the people of Brooklyn.

How to get around

Transportation choices are many when you arrive in Brooklyn. One of the options you could use is the L subway, which cuts through Manhattan.
