Hello Brooklyn

Not strictly a neighborhood in as much as its own district, you might feel as though you’re wandering around an altogether different city in Brooklyn. You wouldn’t be far wrong: the borough was its own city prior to a merger with New York in 1898 and this independent spirit is still very much evident today. Check out the Brooklyn Museum to learn a bit about the history of the borough, before eating, drinking and exploring your way around some of its neighborhoods. Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Brooklyn Heights are just a few of the trendy areas that come packed with eclectic restaurants, cocktail bars, and boutique shops. Whether you’re staying or just want to spend a day there, one of the essential New York experiences is to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to take in the famous skyline. To do so on a full stomach, first join the queue at Grimaldi’s for a slice of some of the best pizza in town.
