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! =)
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!!
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!
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.
