For me, Manhattan is NYC. Anywhere beyond the not so little island is considered as another city.
Just to be clear, as much as I don’t consider Brooklyn as part of the city, it doesn’t mean I don’t love it.
It’s absolutely beautiful with precious quietness in the neighborhood.
I don’t remember a day without waking up to the traffic honk or construction noisy in Manhattan.
You’re indifferent once you’re used to something, that’s me now. I’m so used to the noise that when I visited LA it felt weird without it.
There are so many cute cafes in Brooklyn, and also some great restaurants with amazing view.
Cecconi in Dumbo is absolutely gorgeous, velvet seats and marble tables. Everything is heavy and classy, all the dishes are handmade.
