Favorite Thing To Do In NYC

I’m frequently asked, “What is your favorite thing to do in New York City?”  My answer is…walking over the Brooklyn Bridge.  I know it’s not very original and very predictable but I honestly can’t think of a more beautiful place than walking over the Brooklyn Bridge and seeing lower Manhattan and the East River on a sunny day.  The walk is a little over a mile so it doesn’t take that long to get to Brooklyn.  Once I’m over to the other side, I either get a pizza at Grimaldi’s or head to DUMBO for a pastry at Almondine Bakery.  I can’t resist a sweet treat from Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory or a wicked hot chocolate from Jacques Torres.  In the past 2 years, I’ve noticed that DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights has been getting more and more developed.  There are more parks, restaurants, and things to do in the area.  This time, I walked on the Brooklyn Heights promenade which has stunning views of lower Manhattan and the bridges.  By the way, I never knew how pretty Brooklyn Heights is!  For me, walking the Brooklyn Bridge never gets old.  It’s classic New York and after all these years, it’s still my favorite thing.
