I knew I wanted to go to Brooklyn. I wasn’t sure what that meant. How big is Brooklyn? Is it all safe? how do I know what I will find? Where should I start.
As per usual I started with a google search of the best chocolate shops in brooklyn. I googled best brownies, best cake, best chocolate. Within a few minutes I had found The Chocolate Room. With two locations I figured this would be a safe place to start.
Again , knowing nothing about brooklyn and with a chocolate shop in hand I searched out second hand stores. Now to my map and I found that the chocolate room on 5th was close to Beacon’s closet. Now I could begin…
With my citymapper app in hand and google maps on the computer I was able to determine that the 4/5 trains would get me there. So down I went.
I got off the train at Bergen Street and as I exited the subway I saw in front of me a doughnut shop. Clearly I was in the correct place. With a quick turn of the map app and a smile at a young girl passing my way I was soon pointed in the right direction.
I found 5th Avenue and walked. Five Bakeries, a farmers market, a delicious hamburger later I was headed home feeling the greatest sense of achievement.
I have been to Park Slope. What next?
