Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO Neighborhood Tour

by Olesia January 13 2013, 09:29 USA travel New York

Brooklyn Bridge is a world-famous NYC landmark and one of the most famous bridges in the city. So having seen Manhattan from inside we decided to enjoy gorgeous views of the Manhattan Skyline.

Brooklyn Bridge connects boroughts of Manhattan and Brooklyn. It was opened for use in 1883. On that first day, a total of 1,800 vehicles and 150,300 people crossed what was then the only land passage between Manhattan and Brooklyn. To cross the bridge on the first day they were ought to pay money.

It was very cold on the bridge and we were literally freezing. So my advice wether wear appropriate clothes or make this tour in warm monthes. Today you are welcome to cross the bridge for free. So let's go.

So when we crossed the Bridge we explored DUMBO (the trendy Brooklyn neighborhood), known for its high end boutiquees, delicious desserts and pizza shops, art galleries, and sceneric waterfront views.

Hot chocolate served in Jacques Torres was the most delicious I have ever tasted. I can highly reccomend everyone this place. Their chocolates looked very delicious and appealing. Furthermore this cafe is always full.

After our tour finished we spotted this restaurant with a long queue outside. It was freezing and after big delicious cup of hot chocolate we were not actually hungry so we didn't come in this famous pizzeria (as we knew it after). It is actually one of the most famous pizzeria places in Brooklyn an NY as well. This long queue is usual at Grimaldi's so if you go there prepare to stand in a queue for almost an hour. But those who did say it was worth it.

Grimaldi's is for sure in our things-to-do list for our next trip to NYC.
