"favourite things in NYC" Brooklyn Bridge Tip by bohowastrel

Brooklyn Bridge, New York City: 25 reviews and 25 photos

Favorite thing: Cliches be damned, but first time visitors should really see the Chrysler building, the empire state observation deck at night, liberty island cruise, snowy central park at the weekend, the view of Brooklyn bridge at the pier area near Water Street in the financial district. Coney Island, even when the funfair's closed, for that 50s Americana rocket vibe.

Fondest memory: When I'm away from New York I miss the deli food, the mouthy people, the steaming manhole covers, the sweet smell of street corner roasted nuts, the blaring car horns, the amazing architecture and the generally studenty/arty atmosphere around the village.
