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.
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.
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.New 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!
The Bag-all Asia Tour is soon coming to an end. We are filled with energy and impressions from this beautiful continent. After meeting so many nice people and seeing amazing places, this trip has left us feeling extremely inspired.
Tokyo has been particularly inspiring and its with a long list of new product ideas that we will be heading back to New York. So stay tuned for new, upcoming favorites to our collections!
No rest for the wicked! We started off this year by traveling to Asia, where we've been visiting suppliers, customers and fabric markets in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai.
Now it's time to keep on moving and our next destination is Japan. We're very excited, especially about visiting Bag-all Travel Pop-up stores in Tokyo.
