36 hours on Brooklyn Waterfront- Jiajie Tan

Brooklyn is one of the borough of New York City. It owns a rich history and bunch of entertainments around there. It doesn’t matter which season you go, here still can offer you a perfect trip. Most of time, I would like to go in summer and fall, because these two seasons make me feel comfortable and have more entertainments.


1, Enjoy the sunrise. 8 Amdownload


First,We will drive ourselves or take B6 bus and arrive at the destination called “Belt parkway”(a place which locates beside the sea and there are some stores which sell material goods).

Then,we people could according to their own habits to do something they like .For example,you could go into “BestBuy” if you have  interesting in electric,also you could go to “Modells” to shop some sport goods. Kohl’s is a mall that contains a lot of living goods. We could buy a little pizza and a coffee, then sit on the bench to appreciate the sunrise while we are fishing.

2, lunch special. 12 Amdownload (1)

Then we will take the bus back to 86 street 18 avenue and walk down to 13 avenue. The “Outback” steak house is right there waiting for us. The “Bloomin Onion” is one of my favorite appetizers, this onion is in deep fire and its shape is like a flower when it’s in front of you. This onion costs you about $8.49, but I feel it worth anyway. If you like, you could get a cocktail, beer, milkshakes and soft drinks. The purpose we come here is for the steak. The one that I feel cheap and delicious is called “Parmesan-Herb Crusted Chicken” and it cost you only 15.99 dollars. Stay inside and enjoy the food would make you feel happy because this hot weather.

3, Go into another China Town in Brooklyn. 3pm

8 AV is another China Town in Brooklyn. Here always are crowded day or night because a bunch shops open till mid night. As we known, all things made in China are cheap, so don’t save your money for our pocket this time, just buy and buy. Also, if you are interested in cooking, here will be a treasure for you because all seafood markets and meat markets locate between 59 street and 53 street.  In an addition, there have three large super market locate between 60 street and 61 street. So, how can we miss that.

4, Have fun at night,   6pm

As we see, the temperature have been down to 70 degrees, so is time to go out at night. “100 Fun” is a Karla okay where contains limited room for you to relax and it locates at 59th street 9 avenue. For the reminder, in the night time, below 21 years old are not allowed. You could order any food and drinks, even water. If you drive, hope you do not drink any alcohol, because you will get caught, there a bunch of polices hide around. Also, be good to yourself and others.

5, Try the Food Truck. 10 pm

I know you are tired and hungry after you sang . So, we could go down to 60th street 8 avenue, there has a barbecue food truck called “369”. You won’t lose when you walk around here, because the smell you bring you to the subway stations and the food truck is next to it. You better try their barbecue whole squid, juicy and crispy. I don’t think one portion can satisfy you, and I know you will buy more than one. They also have barbecue pan cake, all kind of meat.

6, Dessert time. 11 pm

Dessert is necessary after dinner. “Kulu”  dessert is a good choice to visit. I always buy a tea is mixed by red bean, yam and milk. Then, I would like to buy a crepe and it has choice for you; you could choose turkey, ham, beef or shrimp with thousand island sauce or Caesar. A warm drink would give you a good sleep.


7, Walk through the Brooklyn Bridge 12 am

Brooklyn Bridge is a bridge which connects Brooklyn and Manhattan and it becomes the icon of the New York City. It was opened for use in May 24, 1883 till now, and the renovation on and off. Although the renovation sometimes bothers the people, but that can’t stop people visit the bridge. When you walk by the bridge, you could see the view of Brooklyn and Manhattan and you also can see the status of liberty. Breathe a fresh air and scream out loud, to be proud of a New Yorker.

8, Junior’s Restaurant. 2 pm

Take R train to DeKalb and down to Flatbush Avenue, and we will see the Junior’s restaurant in front of us. Its cheese cake is just its advertisement “fabulous”. For me, it is an icon of the restaurant. The cheese cake is a priority, you must order and try. The one I like is called Devil food cheesecake which contains a lot of chocolate. However, you better come with your friend, because they only serve the cheese cake in a large size which means it could serve 6 to 8 people, even more. Its cheese cake 29.95 dollars up to 50 dollars. For the reminder, here is not only serve cheese cake, it also offers the regular food.

9, Take a City bike. 5 pm

In downtown Brooklyn, get a city bike is more convenience that take the subway and bus.  Now, it is time to appreciate the sunset and the perfect place is Brooklyn Bridge Park. We will see there have 5 piers there and the construction is still on, but it won’t bother us. In an addition, there has an ice cream factory and we could buy some for the time we enjoy the sunset. Sometimes, here will have some event, such as smorgasbord, unfortunately, it was just passed by 2 months. Also, you could go around the park and see how amazing it is. There owns a lot of facilities, you could run, watch the kids play basketball game, football game and soccer game. If you are interested in, you could be a part of them. Most of time, I would like to sit on the bench and watch the sun down to the west and feel its warmth.

10, Lay down on the lawn.  9pm

Here is such a star observation platform. When you lay down on the lawn, you will be relaxed and you could observe the stars, moon and the airplanes. Maybe, you will feel boring, but you should try and see how it is going.  To be a part of nature is a good way to release.

11, Hotel time. 11pm

Marriott Hotel is located at 333 Adam Street Brooklyn and it is pretty near Brooklyn Bridge, so it is very convenience for our trip. Here has a lot of choice for you to choose you room, one king room, executive room, double room, concierge room…etc. For the dining room, we need to move to Metro Tech room because the renovation. In fact, we only care about the taste of the food after we traveled whole day. Also, it contain gym and spar, so you could sweat yourself then have a massage. I could not imagine what your facial expressions are. After we try all the facilities and entertainments, it is time to go to our super soft mattress.
