I got to know my future home a little bit more last weekend, and let me tell you, this girl is digging those Brooklyn vibes. The flea markets, the little shops, the art galleries . . . OMG . . . so much good food to eat around every corner. And I can walk it all. Now I get why my Brooklyn friends never leave Brooklyn on the weekends. These are some pictures I snapped a few weeks ago on the streets surrounding Bedford Avenue just as the sun was setting. Bedford Avenue is the main street of Williamsburg, full of bars, restaurants, cool shops and bad ass music venues. Not to mention great for hipster watching. And it's just a few blocks from the East River. All of my jams in one place. And still super close to Manhattan. Just a quick subway ride away.
The sky was superbly stunning this evening and I couldn't help but get it on camera. Like a back lit watercolor painting. And the air nice and warm, but not yet as sticky as it is now. Graffiti and poster ridden walls add to the young and rebellious nature of these Williamsburg streets. You sense creativity everywhere. But it's not just cool kids hanging around. There's families, tourists, older couples, people looking for a change of scenery and maybe a good beer down the street. I'm looking forward to immersing myself into a little part of what I've already gotten to know of Brooklyn and make it my own. Enjoy these snapshots. I hope they give you the same feeling that they give me. The feeling of reliving over and over again the perfect hot summer nights of our youth.
