brooklyn-1, brooklyn, new york

Why oh why do I visit New York in the winter?  It’s for the frigid air and blustery winds, that’s why…NOT.  In all seriousness, I make it out to New York once or twice a year.  I even lived in Manhattan for a year, but would you believe that I had never visited Brooklyn?   In my most recent trip, hubby and I stayed in Williamsburg, checking out the neighborhood’s sights, sounds, and food (of course). The place really lived up to its “hipster” image, I mean this in a good way and not in an ironic hipster way. It has a vintage meets laid back meets artistic vibe. I’ll have to make a return in warmer climate. In the meantime, here are some highlights from the trip.
