Three things to do in NYC

The other day Celeste and I had some errands to do in Soho and in Brooklyn. As we live on the Upper West Side we don’t normally go to Soho early in the morning. It is so unusual to have the streets to yourself in Soho as it is normally jam-packed with tourists. I just love how they have kept the cobblestones on the streets.

I did a “jump-photo” of Celeste on a cobble stone street in Soho well over a year ago (it’s on my Instagram @bag_all a thousand pictures ago;). So we had to try another one.IMG_9266

So New York tip #1 today is to go to Soho early in the morning to get it to yourself!

Then we took the subway to Jay Street in Brooklyn. As we where early for our appointment we walked around and when we turned a corner we got this awesome view of Manhattan bridge. This is the bridge north of Brooklyn bridge.IMG_9467

New York tip #2. Take the subway to York Street in Brooklyn and walk around in the blocks close to the water. This is also where the famous Merry-go-round is located.

There was this really thought provoking exhibit going on by the water about peoples garbage. Seeing this makes me even more eager to spread the word about reuse. Bag-all’s slogan is: Please Reuse – Waste Reduce! This is sooo important for the future of this planet!

I love how everything is so photogenic in New York, where ever you turn your camera there is a good backdrop.

On the way back we walked over Brooklyn bridge. The view is mind-blowing…

…and so is the construction of the bridge itself.IMG_9306New York tip #3 is to go to The Frying Pan. This is a restaurant/bar located on a ginourmous boat, docked on Hudson River Park and 26th Street. It is so gorgeous to watch the sun go down over Hudson River on one side and see New York skyline light up on the other side. And they have really good Sangria too!

Tomorrow I will write about the Swedish midsummers celebration in Battery Park each year!
