• Brooklyn Diary

    June 13th 2015 katie

    We were back in New York City for a little holiday last week. We had such a good time on our last trip that we basically booked almost the exact same trip to do it all again. We got an Airbnb a few streets down, re-hit some favourite spots, did the same old walk-eat-shop daily…

  • New York Transit Museum, Brooklyn

    October 31st 2013 katie

    Pretty late in posting about this – took so many photos there that it was a bit of a task editing them! We visited the New York Transit Museum on our last day in town, a roasting hot day where we took the ferry down to Brooklyn Bridge, walked some of the riverside promenade (sadly…

  • Brooklyn on film

    October 25th 2013 katie

    I got back the photos I took on my film cameras in Brooklyn: some from my OM-10 and some from my Lomo Diana. For once nothing jammed or went wrong, so I got lots of good ones. I really like how they get across just how sunny our time there was.

Tucked away in the paymasters’ building at DUMBO’s Navy Yard, the distillery has only been open since 2010. It’s starting to get a reputation for small-batch quality and the…

    We went to the famous Brooklyn Flea, but to the Saturday one at Fort Greene, not the main Williamsburg one. It was pretty good – quite small (I guess the main one is bigger) and a lot of vendors selling new stuff but a few gem stalls with that awesome Americana I was hoping to…

  • Brooklyn & NYC Eats & drinks

    October 7th 2013 katie

    This was always going to be an indulgent foody holiday. I’d saved about 200 places to my Foursquare list and Google map and was determined to plough through as many as possible, waistline be damned. I think we did pretty well! I don’t know if it was the exchange rate or being in Brooklyn rather…

  • Around Brooklyn

    October 5th 2013 katie

    We just got back from an awesome week in Brooklyn. It was basically the antithesis to our last holiday to Barbados: concrete instead of beaches, cocktails and beer instead of rum punch, brunches and Mexican and Chinese food, walking until my feet quite literally gave out… We stayed in yet another great Airbnb rental, a…
