It’s just a few blocks away

Exploring the neighborhoods in Brooklyn

Time just flies by. We have been in New York City 10 days and it is less than nine weeks until we will graduate. We really like NYC. It is a beautiful city with a mix of different cultures and people. Even though Manhattan is a big borough of NYC, it is very easy to navigate here and find what you are looking for, thanks to that Manhattan is divided into blocks. No matter what you are looking for, it is always just a few blocks away.

During our second weekend in NYC, three of us (Emma, Markus and Martina), spent a whole day exploring Brooklyn. We took the subway from the Upper West Side down to Brooklyn early in the morning. Martina visited the Brooklyn Museum while Emma and Markus attended an investment event arranged by Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.

After that, we walked around a lot in the neighborhoods, visited the Brooklyn Bridge Park, ate Chinese food and got back to Manhattan by walking over the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a really nice day with beautiful weather and we are looking forward to explore other parts of NYC during the upcoming weeks.

All the best – Emma & Markus
