New York Trip Post: Day 4: Brooklyn and Staten Island
On our fourth day we decided to start out with a coffee from Kava Cafe which was right around the corner from our hotel. Let me say this, coffee shops on my girl's list are not the kind that really serve "sweet" coffee drinks, which, uh, is what I like. Thankfully the baristas helped me find something I'd like each time.
Once we were fueled we headed towards Brooklyn. I think I mentioned before that there were a few days we got a little messed up with what subways to take. This was one of those days. I think at one point we ended up in The Bronx, but never left the subway station. Oh my! Here's the thing, if you are in one part of Brooklyn, but then want to go to another part, it is very likely you will take the subway back over to Manhatten and then take another train back across to Brooklyn....yah, confusing...AND....how in the world they build those subways under the water. The other time, we were trying to go downtown and ended up on an uptown train (to the Bronx). Not where we wanted to go.
When we planned our trip to Brooklyn we checked the map for locations we wanted to see in relation to the subway lines, because you do not want to waste time getting on wrong trains or jumping all over town and back again. Once we had that established, we knew the order we wanted to see things. Again, we did a lot of walking here as well, my feet survived though they were sure tired and sore. From the bagel shopped, we walked to a coffee shop called Super Crown Coffee, which had a great vibe. Brooklyn reminded us more of some of the Portland neighborhoods we see a lot.
