The Big Apple

It was my second visit to the big apple so this time round I was adamant about experiencing it like a REAL 'New Yorker' rather than spending my days doing the touristy stuff! We decided to stay in Williamsburg, probably one of the coolest neighbourhoods I've ever been too!! Why? It's hip, young, the streets are full of people selling one-off pieces, amazing coffee shops, authentic cafes, great Sunday flea markets... oh and also home to the best Brooklyn bagels... Located only a 3 minute walk from our AirBnB, we made a couple of cheeky pit stops there... of course!  I guess you could compare Williamsburg to East London but I'll put it out there and say it's definitely got that edge. A couple of recommendations for anyone who decides to stay in Williamsburg (I mean you'd be crazy not too!)

Wythe Hotel   The ideal place to watch the sunset over the big smoke (also perfect for a date too!)

Space Ninety 8 A really cool rooftop bar above Urban Outfitters where you can have a few cheeky cocktails and watch the sunset.

Rosarito Fish Shack probably the best fish tacos out there so good we returned two days later! Tip: Go there for Happy Hour, the white wine Sangria is delish!

Toby's Estate Coffee This was our local coffee shop. Literally the  tastiest almond cappucino I've ever tried. You'll see lots of creative types in there too!
