I have a thing for bridges, maybe because living in Portland, we have a lot of them! It was a real treat to take the subway to Brooklyn Bridge Park, and find myself between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge. It's an interesting place, one that is undergoing a renaissance of new development.
I always remember this area being the favorite location of crime scenes in shows from the 70's, so it was nice to see that it's an area that's being redeveloped into shops, galleries and fun restaurants. I still think it's a popular destination to film movies and commericals though, after reading about complaint from neighbors who are sick of their lives being disrupted.
I couldn't resist snapping a picture of this hot pink girly bike!
Where Seattle and Portland have Coffee shops, New York seems to have an abundance of good bakeries!
We stumbled upon this colorful bakery called One Girl Cookies, where they have miniature cookies that are a work of art! We bought 5 for $10 and I'd like to say that I took a photo, but we enjoyed them on our way back to midtown. It was such a windy day, I felt like I was going to be blown into the East River!
