Along The East River

Posted on Thursday, July 21, 2016

As my summer in Brooklyn is coming to an end I have been trying to squeeze in some last minute adventures. The other day my friend Shannon and I went to Williamsburg. Even though it is only a few stops away from me on the L train, I had never been... It was so cute! Everywhere you looked there was either an artisanal coffee shop or a little boutique. We stopped for a quick bite at Cafe Colette. I recommend going while you tour around Williamsburg, it is a perfect spot for people watching. After lunch we strolled down to the waterfront and did a little rock climbing (kinda). What I would not recommend: climbing in platforms... However going out on to the rocks was totally worth a few scrapes and bruises. Our day was filled with my favorite things: coffee and sunshine. If you are ever in New York definitely plan a day in Williamsburg and skip the excursion to Times Square.
