For people who spend most of their time in Manhattan or slightly west of the city, traveling to Brooklyn is almost as daunting as breaking out your passport to go to a foreign country. On a slightly cloudy fall afternoon, I made the journey across the Brooklyn Bridge, which gives gorgeous city views, as well as a chance to walk around Dumbo. The bridge itself is unique, as the pedestrian walkway is above the traffic, definitely gives the feeling of being on top of the world. There's a great park too, right under the bridge that you can see Lady Liberty, as well as just enjoy people watching. I also just loved being able to walk around the neighborhood with lots of brownstones and quaint stores.
