One Day In Brooklyn

For many people, Manhattan equals New York City.  But just across the river lies another part of New York City that deserves your exploration: Brooklyn.  Set aside a day to take a tour of Brooklyn with these hand-picked highlights.

Brunch off Bedford Avenue

Kick off your day with brunch at Teddy’s Bar & Grill, a laid-back joint that arguably offers the best no-frills weekend brunch menu around: you can’t go wrong with the salty-and-sweet French Toast Sandwich (stuffed with ham and gruyere) or spicy Eggs Guajillo.

An afternoon in Greenpoint

Head to the Greenpoint Historic District, one of the most underrated (and under-visited) neighborhoods in the borough. Greenpoint’s charm is found in its quiet tree-lined streets and old-world European feel, the latter of which can largely be credited to the long-standing presence of a thriving Polish community.

After dark in Williamsburg

There’s no shortage of choice for dinner and drinks once the sun goes down in Williamsburg.  One solid option is nearby Grand Street & Driggs Avenue.  The next three blocks are lined with bars and restaurants: standouts include hand rolls and sushi bombs at Bozu and picklebacks at Maracuja Bar & Grill.

After after dark in Brooklyn

After dinner, you’ll have more trouble deciding which bars to go to than you will finding one. But no matter which direction you head, late-nighters should consider winding up the evening (or early morning) at one of two neighborhood bowling alleys: stylish Brooklyn Bowl, open until at least 2am, or the divey Gutter, open until 4am.
