This was my favourite day!  Hopped on the 6 to the Brooklyn Bridge, so we could both experience our first walk across it.  This was also the first day I brought my 35 mm 1.8 lens along with us and it sure saved the day.  The views from the Brooklyn Bridge are stunning and we went photo crazy.  Once in Brooklyn, we explored around DUMBO for a bit and grabbed a small bite.  Took a cab over to Lafayette and Vanderbilt aka the Saturday Brooklyn Flea.  Cannot say enough great things about this flea market!  So much amazing junk, art, treasures, handmade pieces, and local food vendors.  We spent a few hours soaking it all in, taking shade and Popsicle breaks when necessary.   I also bought a beautiful necklace from Jessica DeCarlo Jewelry, which I'll be showing you very soon.

We then cabbed over to Williamsburg and spent the day shopping and sitting at McCarren Park watching a squirrel hang upside down, two overlapping baseball games, and general BK life.  We had happy hour drinks and the most deeelicious meal at Allswell on Bedford Ave.  They change their menu daily, which means you're getting a fresh, local meal.  Highlights were the spicy fried chick peas and vegetarian flatbread.  Their patio is small, but definitely worth trying to score a spot on.  Easily took the L train back home to refresh and have some late night drinks.  It was a Saturday night on vacation after all!

{Day 3 BROOKLYN Recommendations}

HOW TO GET THERE: Walking the Brooklyn Bridge is a must.  The L Train is also super easy/speedy.
WHERE TO SHOP: I have a soft spot in my heart for Flea Markets, so I very much recommend paying the Brooklyn Flea a visit.  Also worth seeing is Beacon’s Closet for their great treasures.  Bought a shirt from an awesome vintage store that I cannot remember the name of.  Will look into this and get back to you.
WHERE TO EAT + DRINK: People’s Pops Popsicles.  Coffee from Blue Bottle Coffee .  Dinner and drinks at ALLSWELL on Bedford Ave.  Ended the night back in NYC with drinks at the Ace Hotel Lobby Bar, which was always full of cool people.  We shared some great convo over 90's R&B jams.  The BEST!

  30. Sildenafil Citrate relaxes the associated muscles and causes expansion of
    the arteries and thus restores the blood pressure to normal.
    The jelly form grabbed eyeballs as soon as it was launched.
    Theoretically erectile dysfunction can affect a man at any age; though the fact is that young men experience it
    less frequently than elder.

  31. My name is Darin and I was born in NY in the
    US - I am a freshman who studies Film Studies and
    I manage a unique domain about Ordering Viagra Online, plus other related subjects like
    acne cysts on face, iphone 4s unlocked ebay,
    and ipad stylus for kids. This problem is manageable via the use of medications having phosphodiesterase- 5 preventions (PDE-5).

    Typical labels for medicines in this category are Viagra,
    Cialis, and Levitra, and all call for a prescription to buy.
    There are no impacts from this medicine in the absence of sexual stimulation.

  32. Most loan applications by individuals with bad credit are declined by lending institutions.
    With a bad credit payday loan it is created for people with bad credit and practically everybody is accepted.
    Because your payment is instantly deducted from your account on payday, Lenders
    are able to do this. This implies that the lender makes sure you are going to be able to pay back
    the cash you have obtained from them.
