My favorite things about the 212 include:
Williamsburg (Brooklyn) - We got off the subway to see the Marcy Projects (birth place of Jay Z & Memphis Bleek), and roamed around looking for pizza. One our way to a couple highly rated pizza places (thanks Yelp) we ran into a piece by Space Invader. I'm obsessed with street art and found this piece THE highlight of my trip. I've seen one of his pieces here in LA, but was ecstatic to see other in NY.
Transportation: Subways & my feet. What a convenient and effective way to travel...LA, you need to get on the program! They're onto something here! People told me to bring good shoes since I'd be doing a lot of walking (I had to figure the weather in too - it snowed while we were there), little did I know how uncomfortable some of my "comfortable" shoes really were. I like walking everywhere. I also feel like it combated all that I ate...
E A T I N G! Soooo many good places to eat: pizzerias, cafe's, bakeries, hot dog stands, food trucks, etc. I ate more pizza than anticipated (on 3 occasions), gotta love me some NY style pizza :)
Museums, people, culture, architecture, originality, art, shopping, diversity....love it all. I'm hooked. I've been experiencing serious withdrawals, mark my word, I'll be back...this year. You can count on it :)
