Brooklyn Guide

part 1 - intro

Our CEO and Creative Director, Kristina Lindhe, shares her best Brooklyn tips.
"Brooklyn is part of New York, it's east of the East River, which ends in Long Island. On the surface, Brooklyn is much bigger than you can imagine, and it is divided into different districts, of which Williamsburg is one. Brooklyn was first populated by a Dutchman, but today it is a fairly mixed group of people you meet there - everything from Americans, Scandinavians to Orthodox Jews".
"I, like so many others, fell in love with Brooklyn, and particularly Williamsburg, when I visited the first time. The atmosphere, the people, the buildings and, above all, the calmness was noticeably different than in Manhattan, just a subway stop away".
"The easiest way to get to Williamsburg is by subway. Take the L-train from Union Square and get off at Bedford Avenue. Bedford Avenue is the heart of Williamsburg, and this avenue runs from one side of the borough to the other. During the summer it is also nice to take the ferry across the East River (and there are several places you can get on and off)".
"Don't miss the bustling McCarren Park in the heart of Brooklyn. Lots of people, including myself, go running on the tracks and a number of PT:s are training with their clients here. Other parts of the park are havens for skating, baseball and tennis. And if it's a hot day, I recommend a swim in the big swimming pool (it's actually the biggest outdoor pool in NY). Take part in any of the many activities the park has to offer or buy a coffee and sit down to enjoy the hustle and bustle. Not far from the park, at 90 Kent Avenue, you'll find a great food market on Saturday's called Smorgasburg, filled with lots of delicious food - mostly local and organic. Why not grab something to go and take a stroll over the Williamsburg Bridge across East River - a classic on weekends. The view is amazing".
