48 Hour New York Itinerary (Brooklyn)

New York, New York Guide (B): 48 Hour New York Itinerary (Brooklyn)

I promised myself that every time I come back, looking for things to do in NYC, I’ll include exploring a different borough. I, like most visitors who are looking for things to do in NYC tend to create a New York itinerary solely for Manhattan. I get it. It’s where all the well-known tourist attractions are found so naturally, those visiting NYC for the first time will gravitate to the touristy stuff.

Coming from Toronto, I am a short one and a half hour flight away which means I have the luxury of visiting the Big Apple more frequently.

Don’t Get Me Wrong, I Will Never Get Bored of Manhattan.

The island is amazing! All I’m saying is that when you say New York there are four other boroughs besides Manhattan to explore. Since my beautiful family resides in Brooklyn New York it was the obvious borough to explore first. Every time I visit New York I must spend an afternoon/evening with my family (my aunt and her husband cook up this mouth-watering feast).

Pray. Eat. Laugh. Then talks of travel, politics, history, family etc. I look forward to it every year!

Ok, 2 days in Brooklyn. This will be a small taste of some awesome Brooklyn attractions, that will include foodie spots, beer spots, instagrammable spots and some history spots for those who like that stuff.

But first, let talk accommodations…
