BROOKLYN

COUNTRY: NEW YORK, USA

The activity offerings in Brooklyn are as diverse as its residents. From incredible food, nature, art, and music, Brooklyn truly has something for everyone. We’ll take you through a journey on the perfect day through the famous borough from the lens of the art enthusiast, the music buff, and the pizza lover, respectively. After exploring, you'll find that Brooklyn is one place proudly living up to its hype.

WHERE NEW YORK CITY BEGINS

01/ FOR THE ART & DESIGN ENTHUSIAST

While The Brooklyn Museum always has a solid art exhibition on view, it’s worth heading East to Bushwick and exploring some lesser-known contemporary galleries. Be sure to stop by CLEARING (New York branch to it’s Belgian counterpart) for a look at an international roster of emerging talent. Wander the factory-lined streets of Bushwick and happen upon some of New York’s best graffiti. After lunch at Bunna Cafe, an Ethiopian restaurant and Bushwick mainstay, head west for your appointment at FORM Atelier’s East Williamsburg showroom where you’ll discover art, objects, and furniture curated by husband-wife duo Avril Nolan & Quy Nguyen. If you are still craving a museum experience, we’d recommend a late afternoon hour visiting the Isamu Noguchi Foundation for a meditative experience viewing abstract sculpture in a lovely garden setting.

02/ FOR THE MUSIC BUFF

Start your day in Greenpoint, (Williamsburg’s less-touristy Northern neighbor) with brunch at Le Fanfare, a cozy authentic Italian restaurant owned by musicians with a rotating cast of live jazz acts. While you wait for your table make sure to head next door to For The Record, a coffee shop & record store mash-up offering an impressive selection of new and used vinyls. After brunch, make your way down Franklin street where you’ll peruse through eclectic shops to find the perfect vintage band tee. For an early dinner head to South Williamsburg for natural wine and small plates at The Four Horseman from James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. To cap off the night hop in a car towards Bed-Stuy’s LunÀtico, an intimate bar-restaurant and one of Brooklyn’s best-kept musical secrets with daily acts from Brazilian jazz and brass to folk and world beats.

Fall in love WITH PLACES YOU’VE NEVER BEEN.

03/ GRAND TOUR DE PIZZA

A controversial subject, Brooklyn’s best pizza, is indeed a matter of personal taste. As a Brooklyn newcomer, we love the idea of dedicating an entire day to discovering your new favorite. From top to bottom, we’ll suggest a list for you to see exactly how far you can get. Begin North in Greenpoint for a thick grandma-style square at Paulie Gee’s Slice Shop. Make sure to opt in for the Mike’s Hot Honey to amplify the experience. Further down in Williamsburg you’ll find a traditional New York slice at Best Pizza, a cozy no-frills spot for thin and crispy triangle slices in all their classic glory. Make your way over to Saraghina in Bed-Stuy for Neapolitan style in a romantic garden setting. We love their airy, blistered crusts dipped in the house-made spicy hot chili oil. Finally head to Lucali in Carrol gardens where you’ll indulge in some of New York’s finest (if you can get a table that is) and be sure not to sleep on the Calzones.
