a few weeks ago i took a spontaneous trip to brooklyn…it had been forever since i took a weekend off, and i’d never spent any time in brooklyn, so i figured a road trip was in order. it poured rain on saturday, and was shockingly springlike on sunday, which lent itself to the perfect combination of exploring the various neighborhoods, ducking into pubs + boutiques to escape the downpour, and eating al fresco when the sun shone. highlights included staying at the simple + chic Nu hotel, an afternoon at the brooklyn brewery, and the stunning view of manhattan at dusk from DUMBO.
oh! and even though ive been to nyc a million times, this was the first time i spotted the statue of liberty! she was perfectly silhouetted against the setting sun…fancy!
