Brooklyn Mini-break Day 2

November 6, 2015

The day started with a bang! As we jumped in the lift we realized that Brooklyn was hosting the National Beard Competition and that we just happened to be staying at the sponsor hotel. I wish we had of taken pictures…there were some amazing moustaches and beards 🙂

After breakfast at the hotel we headed to Fort Green Park for a play and the views of the city

Then we had a little wander through downtown Brooklyn….
(note the billboard: All I need is YOU and a new shoes!)

Before heading to the New York Transit Museum to see all the old subway trains…

We checked out of the hotel and finished off the awesome chocolate babka from yesterday 🙂

Next stop was a quick bus to Flatbush. We took a family vote and it was 3-1 for pizza 🙂

At 1pm we did a fun Flatbush food tour by foot. Whilst not as good as yesterday’s graffiti tour it was still lots of fun. I was really proud of Eli and Lachie for trying everything 🙂

A huge highlight for Nathan and Lachlan, was when we ran into a bunch of guys writing a game in one of the cafes.

On the subway back to Penn station, there was some truely amazing hip hop buskers in the Subway car with us. Their use of space with high speed flips and spins was super-fun to watch. It was incredible they didn’t hit anyone.

Then home for a friend’s birthday dinner in the evening.
We had a great couple of days in Brooklyn 🙂
There is still so much to see we may have to do it again!

    It’s a great place to visit, It’s a shame that Nathan had shaved before the trip!!!!!
