To The Brooklyn Bridge!

This week has been quite frantic for me! That explains missing my post yesterday.. I actually think I may have to go off my Sunday + Wednesday schedule for the next month or so as I'm travelling and moving up to college! I might just end up posting once a week or so when I have time! I will continue my blog no matter what though!
These past few days, I have been running everywhere picking up stuff for my dorm room haha! I've gone online and hunted down a few "what to pack for college" list and used them as the basis for my list. As of today, I've gotten the majority of my items. I've decided to try and just bring the "basics" first and then build up my dorm room from there! I'll be doing a college haul/packing post later so I'll talk more about those items later! =)

Brookyln Bridge at Night

My post today will be part of my vacation recap (part 1 here)! I have been looking through my photos and I can't believe how fast the time went!! I'll be back very soon, but time feels so weird to me right now. I think it's because I know there are big changes up ahead so things just feel odd.. haha.
One place that we visited while I was in NY was the Brooklyn Bridge! We actually went there twice so the pictures that you will be seeing here come from both visits. The first time we went to the bridge, we were just under it walking around the park. It's actually a huge park and super relaxing. The second time that we went, we took the subway to get to the bridge. Once there, we went to walk across the bridge!! Being on the bridge gives you an amazing view of the city!

The view at both the morning and night are amazing!! I could see all the buildings and I have to say that there are a lot of people there! The streets in NY at night are busier than the streets here during the daytime! While I was out and about, I depend on my cell phone's camera lot! That's actually where the majority of my photos for this post come from.. my cell phone!!

Brooklyn Bridge Walking


Brooklyn Bridge at night

On the night that we walked the bridge, we also got to see the streets under the bridge. I didn't know this before, but I had been to a lot of places before. I just didn't put the locations together to realize that all these places were connected!! For example, I've been to the marry go round before, but I never noticed that the ride was right under the bridge until that night! It's so cool how everything is connected!! I definitely enjoyed being able to see everything in person. It's so much cooler!! Everything is just so alive in the city even at night time! 

Brooklyn Bridge Pizza



Brooklyn Bridge Factory Ice Cream

After our walk around the park the first time and on the bridge the second time, we got ourselves some dinner! Both times, we visited a nearby pizza shop known for it's pizzas! (though I don't know the shop's name at the moment!..) The pizza was ohh so good!! The crust was on the thinner side which I liked since that gave more flavor to the toppings! The second time that we visited, we picked up 4 huge pizzas to split among 8 people, two of which were little kids lol! That night, I think I had 5+ huge slices of pizza... ! It was very tasty though!!
The first time that we went, we ordered just enough pizza for us to be satisfied but not overally full which left room for ice cream!! We got out ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. The ice cream that I chose to have was the butter pecan and gosh was the ice cream delicious. It was pretty surreal eating ice cream and pizza under the bridge at night hehe!

Have you ever been to the Brooklyn Bridge?
What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Any tips for what to pack or what not to pack? I have a feeling I am probably over packing some things and forgetting others lol.

  10. Stunning pictures! I especially like the one before the pizza (which looked delicious!) My favorite ice cream flavor is the more richer flavors- chocolate, caramel, peanut butter!

  11. Wow your pictures here are just stunning and look super professional! I hope you're enjoying your time in NYC (jealous) and don't worry about blogging! Just have fun!
    Thank you for your great comment over at my blog! I am not going to UConn but rather Hartwick College in NY. But I do know a classmate who is going there which I think is awesome! Maybe you'll meet him:P
    To answer your questions, no, I have not been to the Brooklyn Bridge but have seen a lot of it from Gossip Girl. And my favorite ice cream flavor is just Vanilla. I'm boring but I think it is the most delicious food ever! And for the packing: check out my latest post on college style (which you commented on) for college packing or an overall packing post here:

  12. What a wonderful place! I'm so excited for you Mindy, college is going to be such an adventure. I wish I could have the same experience since I didn't really go to dorms because my university is just downtown, not too far away from home. I hope you don't pack too much, it would be so hard to carry so much stuff all the way to college =D

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xx
