Hello Brooklyn

LOCATION & CONNECTIVITY

The Bushwick art gallery has a good connectivity through subway. The nearest station is Jefferson Street Station – L line.

HISTORY

A bit of history about this place. It was started in 2012 by Joe Ficalora, a native in this area. He was born here and had all kinds of experiences. It was him who wanted to change his bad experiences and create good memories about this place, by inviting artists from all over the world and showcase their ideas. Its a great place to be for an outdoor art gallery.

THE ART COLLECTION

Some of the art pieces we managed to click that day. A lot more needs to be explored. We were thinking of visiting there someday again. Enjoy the virtual gallery below 😀

BEST PIZZA IN BROOKLYN

One pizza place I would like to highly recommend. On our way back from The Bushwick Collective, we ended up at this pizza place called The Best Pizza at Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Being a vegetarian we always crave for different varieties of veg pizzas, though I am a huge fan of standard to go all time favorite cheese margherita, this place has so much to offer. We call it “out of the box pizza”.

Interior Best pizza

What all it had– Instead of regular toppings and tomato sauce base, it had pickled veges (cauliflower, potato, beetroot). Never had such combinations on our pizza. Its worth a try. We ended up eating more than we thought we actually will. 😛

Ending the day with carrot cheesecake at Junior’s. What a day!! 😀

The Shining Armor: Vessel at Hudson Yards

A big giant pineapple! That’s what comes to my mind when I look at The Vessel. A newly opened building at Hudson Yards, New York. Am I too much into food? I wonder.

Vessel was opened to public from March 15, 2019. It was around July summer time when we decided to be a bit touristy and visited this massive shiny architectural piece.

What works for this building is its location. Located at the center of Hudson yards with unique wide big offices, stores, fancy apartments and High Line where you can stroll around in the heart of New York, Manhattan. More about High line, later below.

And also the design which is quite unique as mastered by Thomas Heatherwick and Heatherwick Studio.

It’s a 2500 steps, 150 foot tall structure with 16 stories.

If you want to go inside, there is a ticket. We decided to see it from outside because it was way too much crowded. Has become quite a tourist spot in a very short time.

Trying to find a place to get clicked.

LOCATION

The High Line

High line is an elevated public park built on an old rail track on the West side of Manhattan. It starts from Washington Street and runs till 34th street 34th ave. It showcases skyscrapers, nature, design and art all together.

Saravanaa Bhavan : Vegetarian restaurant

To my surprise, NYC has its own Saravanaa Bhavan. Its located at  Lexington Ave. I remember back in Delhi, how we used to wait in long queues to have that perfect Dosa with variety of chutneys. My all time favorite is Coconut chutney. This one was pretty good too. Felt like home. 😀

Saravanaa Bhavan (Street View)

Heard so much about the legend dosa man at NYC Washington square park. Will be sharing our experiences once we get a chance to visit there. 😀

What are your favorite places to eat near Hudson yards??

Would love to hear from you.
