The Final Destination

Well we have arrived at our final destination DC. So what happened between the last post and arriving in DC.

Our stay in Brooklyn ended up being one of the most memorable destinations of the whole trip. The morning breakfasts dining with all the guests and talking to Glenn were true highlights and really made the Brooklyn trip.

On our last few days in Brooklyn we decided to explore the local neighborhoods. Street after street was filled without unique boutiques. world foods and vibrant locals. Every street held something new be it a hidden community garden or grand murals covering the sides of brownstones. The only problem? Costs way to much to live there! A brownstone in Bed Stuy will set you back a cool 700k USD.

Leaving Brooklyn on a greyhound we headed into Philly with a single purpose. Find the Rocky statue. Thankfully we achieved this first thing which left us the rest of the day to wonder the streets and hang out in the park watching interpretive dance and listening to live music with illy defined sound levels.

The Heat

Today we decided to head down to the Brooklyn Bridge park to take a few pics and lounge around. However it the heat didn’t take long to become completely unbearable.

We took refuge in a nearby bookstore and took advantage of the wonderful air conditioning. We decided it was simply to hot in Brooklyn and it might be cooler down in Coney Island.

So after an incredibly long ride on the subway that was thankfully air conditioned we arrived. And as we had hoped it was much cooler. Coney Island reminded me of GTA and blasting around the pier area while listening to the hip hop station.

The one thing that was a shocker were the prices $6 a ride! At those prices Disney is cheaper. As we walked around the park a young couple approached us and gave us some of their tickets for the rides. So free tickets in hand we headed to the ferris wheel.

Killing it in Bklyn

On our first day in Brooklyn we decided to get the majority of the Manhattan excursions completed so we could spend the rest of the stay in the neighborhood.

So first thing in the morning after a truly filling breakfast of fruit and waffles we headed to the subway. A short ride and a missed stop later we were just past our first destination The Natural History Museum.

All the way round the museum you could hear everyone talking about seeing certain parts in The Night At The Museum. We also managed to fall prey to this and got incredibly excited when we saw the dum dum statue. After a few hours we began to tire so time for a Gatorade and hot dog recharge.

After this we headed to SoHo to check out a paper store Sian had read about on the internet. I wasn’t as excited about this store so I waited patiently in front of a fan cooling down while playing with my iPhone. Did I mention the HEAT IS A KILLER!!!!!
