By Mariano Feng Wu

May 3, 2019

Brooklyn Bridge Park, as we can conclude is located in downtown Brooklyn. This place gets a thousand of visitors every single year, and one of the main reasons is because it has a splendid view toward the Brooklyn bridge and Manhattan. Including other activities like picnic, free movies with an excellent view, special events, and even kayaking that is one of my favorite activities when it’s available. Additionally, this area also has an excellent area where we can find historical moments and where this can be appealing to those like me who are interesting on historical monument.

Young George Washington was presented with an army of 9,000 that were facing 20,000 well-armed British.

  • 8:30 P.m. Fulton Hot Dog King

Not all the places at Waterfront or Dumbo are expensive, walking back to Fulton St. Fulton Hot Dog King, this location was opened in the past 100 years as one of the employees told me. This hot dog shop was a convenient place where you can find a variety of fast food on the store. Although, I’m not a big fan of junk food, the price was affordable. A single Hot Dog cost you $2.50 and the price increases depend of the type of sausage that you want. Additionally, they do also sell other product beside the hot dogs, they as well sell burgers, pizzas and fresh juices. Something that I will recommend about this place is the pineapple juice, which cost you $1 for a small cup and $2 for a large cup.

 

Saturday

As I decided to bike in the morning, the Brooklyn War Memorial is a park that has a beautiful view where you can go and jogged, but where it really has an important significant of their statues that are build there in the park.

  • 5:30 P.m. Truman Capote’s house

One of the best parts of Dumbo is that we can find one of the oldest houses in Brooklyn with a value that still endure. I will recommend to any tourist who mostly love art or love to take pictures about our city, to go and contemplate the elegant that this historical house last through time. Its color and shape are something that caught my attention and I really enjoyed discovering this place because is near the neighborhood is quiet to spend time after college or a hectic work.

  • 8 P.m. Bargemusic

Arriving back to the Waterfront Park, I found out that there was a concert going on at the Bargemusic. At the set was Rira Sloan and Jonathan Feldman that were playing instrument while other were dancing around, I was somewhat interested because I didn’t know that much about the place. however, having some search I found thought that this place have a historical moment where it was founded by Olga Bloom that was 57 years old in 1976, she gave up her career as a violinist and violist to create this beautiful place that now is known as the Bargemusic.

Sunday

  • 11:30 A.m. Grimaldi’s Coal Brick-Oven Pizzeria

At starting the day on Monday, historic Grimaldi’s location under the Brooklyn Bridge, this place offers a spacious environment with two floor of dining accommodating. The shop has an excellent “secret recipe” sauce and a 100-year-old dough recipe, which make this Pizza that Made the Brooklyn Bridge famous. The price was a little bit too much that you can expected on other regular pizza store, but the services was one of the main points of it. The services were really clean that they even pay attention to any details while you are ordering.

Lodging

The NU hotel was the place that I decided to stay because it was one of the hotels that have an excellent amenity, plus it cost less than other hotel that are around the area. The hotel room cost around $175 per room and the price variate depending on the type of room you want to get. Furthermore, this hotel was near to all the places that I was visiting which it was easy for me to take a walk or bike to all the location that I visited. Additionally, this hotel service a continental breakfast that is include on the guest amenities program fee.
