Travel is a big part of my authentic life and it generally gives me a big creative, inspirational jolt. This time I’m taking you to NY and I will be blogging daily (no matter how many miles I have walked! and yes, i already have blisters and sores on day 1). What I love the most about NY is that can be a different experience every time. I always make it a point to find the eclectic neighborhoods that most tourists would skip. But then, I’m a traveler, not a tourist 😉
So, here goes…
Day 1: Williamsburg, Brooklyn
If you don’t know about Williamsburg, it’s the biggest hipster mecca in the States. In one word… AWESOME! lol. I saw lots of bangs and LOTS of wayfarers. While most shops don’t allow you to photograph, I did take some photos where they were permitted. Oh yes, and I did do some shopping (ok, too much maybe!).
I am staying in Bed-Stuy, the other end of Brooklyn, so I decided to walk all the way back. Where in dallas will i get to walk 2 miles with a heavy laptop & camera bag? Lol. But really, where in Texas would I get to see the neighborhoods so drastically change from one ethnic community to the other? It went from hipsters to hasidic jews to dominican to african to… it’s just fascinating to me.
And hence the blisters and sores.
Enjoy the pics!
