A single Hot Dog cost you $2.50 and the price increases depend of the type of sausage that you want.

The services were really clean that they even pay attention to any details while you are ordering.

The park honors Pastor of the Brooklyn Pastor, Samuel Parks Cardman. And you can visit or take pictures of the huge monuments in the center of the park dedicated to the Brooklyn faction that served in the Second World War.

3) 5 p.m. Enjoy delicious sushi

Although I am here for the first time at Iron Chef House, I am very satisfied with the service and food. This is a classic setting with a candlelit table, bare brick walls and classic decor. You can see the chef cutting sushi through the glass window, which is very cool. Sushi itself is very good, not the best sushi in my life, but you can find the best sushi in the area. The salmon tastes super fresh (Tuna & Salmon Sushi Dinner-3 pcs. tuna, 3 pcs. salmon, one tuna & salmon roll $19), very delicious.

The New York Transit Museum is an interesting place to use the decommissioned subway station to remodel. The entrance to the museum is very similar to the real subway entrance. The collection is rich and the subway is not modeled. This is an amazing value for all the cool things you see. The museum is large, you will start with the history of the subway (how to build, mechanics, people and their roles).

Habana Outpost is one of a kind ambiance in Brooklyn or even in New York City. Casual, lively, eccentric with vibrant colors and Spanish music. Wonderful outdoor seating made up of colorful picnic tables, benches, and chairs. Once you walk in, all of a sudden, the busy streets, cars, and people seems so far away even though they are only separated by a tall fence. Customers order food and drinks and pay at the counter located inside the restaurant. Food and drinks are delicious (Roast pork burrito- roast pork, tomatoes, rice & beans wrapped in a flour tortilla w/side of jalapenos $10), while prices on the menu does not seem too expensive at glance. Although there are indoor seating, it is very much an outdoor restaurant.

 

Sunday

When you walk into the Grand Army Plaza, your first look is inseparable from the classical and solemn arches. Once inside, you can see the bust of the Kennedy Peninsula and a large fountain. In the summer when the fountain runs, this is a surprisingly quiet place to sit and watch the world. This is a great place to relax for a few minutes at any time of the year.

The conservatory has several areas (temperate, desert, tropical) with beautiful plants.. Welcoming the spring with the cherry blossom at this place was worth it. The Japanese garden is really nice place to relax. The bonsai collection is pretty good. The store at the entrance has interesting stuff, some special plants and seeds.

Honestly, this was my first time to visit Brooklyn Bridge Park. Visiting Brooklyn Bridge Park was giving me a good and unforgettable experience for me.

Sport tourism is an important topic for people who travel to a place. They have different feeling and experiences in some ways by doing some activities.

During the class trip, I observed some people who running and walking dog in the morning when I was walking around the hotel. The weather is actually a little bit cold in that day, but they keep doing it, probably every day. I saw there are a few basketball courts from a distance. I believe that there will be a lot people doing sports during summer in Brooklyn Bridge Park, Including Soccer, fishing, riding bikes, even boating, and so on.

Cultural Tourism

Laura, Sharnae

Cultural tourism is concerned with a region’s lifestyle based on art, architecture, religion and other factors. Within our group, Sharnae and I focused on the art forms that Brooklyn Bridge Park and DUMBO had to offer.

During the class trip, we observed a few places that related to cultural tourism. We started off at Bargemusic, a place that sits by the waters and has musical performances. While taking a stroll over to St. Ann’s Warehouse, a theatre, which was previously a tobacco warehouse, it was discussed that there are public arts, sometimes seen on walls and even art installations. At the warehouse, we discussed activities that one might do while touring the area, such as going to Pier 1 to sit in the grass and watch an outdoor movie, listening to musicians play live at Bargemusic, and looking at art installations set up around the park. It was also discussed that not only are there plays at the theatre, but actors and actresses play their roles walking around the park. Lastly, when we headed to Empire Stores, there were art in there as well. Almost like a mini museum, there was an area where Brooklyn artist’s art were being showcased.
