Day 361: Nonstop NYC

Ladurée macarons

Despite having visited NYC over Thanksgiving break and several times over the summer, I can’t seem to stay away.

This time, I joined my friend in the city for a weekend, consisting of exploring the other side of NYC that is Brooklyn by staying at an Airbnb for the first time. EDIT: Just saw the raving review our hosts left for us. I think this about sums the weekend up:

It’s difficult to quantify fun, but Sonia and her friend seemed to have more fun here than just about anybody. They were upbeat, respectful and very pleasant to be around. We would happily have them back any day.

Oh, Brooklyn. All I’ll say is, at least you have $12.95 all-you-can-eat sushi.

After checking in to our spacious apartment at what a neighborhood of Brooklyn that Swarm called “Gowanus,” my friend and I decided to head into the city and explore. And by explore, we naturally mean eat.
