Following New York’s visit: You’ll find a list of things to do, this time in Brooklyn (with still pictures of Manhattan & Brooklyn). A melting pot of walks and places a bit less prevalent (everything’s relative !). Especially for Brooklyn: if originally the place was more “underground”, Brooklyn became more and more famous, which means as busy as Manhattan those days.

I didn’t had the time yet to explore everything, so I’ll concentrate some spots around Williamsburg & Greenpoint, which are supposed to be the most “arty” and famous places. If at some point some places looks “roots”, it’s also the thing that I like in this part of New York, with all the old buildings and cosmopolitans people. A good way also to move away from Manhattan hustle & bustle.

By way of conclusion, I’ll retain this: New York is definitely the city which never sleeps, and if you tend to believe that the trip will be exhausting, just let yourself drift away by the city flow and you’ll notice that it’s in fact the complete opposite: you’ll feel boosted and full of this “everything is possible” energy.

It’s no coincidence if I always want to go back… and the most exhausting is the jetlag, after all.
Besides, a resolution that I took, and not only for 2016: save money and travel more!
