Cities Less Traveled- Brooklyn Neighorhoods

Travel Series Oh My Heartsie GirlBrooklyn / Four Underrated Brooklyn Neighborhoods
Have you been to Manhattan a million times but never set foot in Brooklyn? If so, you’re not alone. While it’s the most populous of New York’s five boroughs, Brooklyn seems to be forever in Manhattan’s shadow, which has helped cement its reputation as a place with a bit of an attitude. But with convenient Brooklyn flights to both JFK and La Guardia and lots of affordable Brooklyn hotels, there’s no excuse not to check it out.


In recent years, Brooklyn has come into its own, with pricey Williamsburg serving as the defacto capital of American hipster culture. Filled with speakeasy-style bars, quirky boutiques, and shops boasting “artisanal”, “vintage”, and “organic” products as far as the eye can see, it’s tempting to think Williamsburg represents the whole borough. But those who venture a little further into the area’s lesser-known neighborhoods will discover that Brooklyn has a lot more to offer.

Bay Ridge

Bay Bridge At Night

Bay Bridge At Night

Originally envisioned as a resort town for the city’s wealthy residents, this neighborhood on Brooklyn’s southwest coast is home to strong Irish, Greek, and Italian communities, many of whom have roots in the area going back several generations. You’ll find echoes of the area’s opulent past in now anachronistic-looking mansions like the Gingerbread House and Farrell House. Take in views of the harbor at the 69th Street Pier, or pay your respects at the September 11th memorial near Fort Hamilton.

Bushwick

Holding up Williamsburg’s southeast corner, Bushwick is a great place to get a taste of hipsterdom without diving in headlong. One mandatory stop is Roberta’s, which the New York Times called, “one of the more extraordinary restaurants in the United States.” It’s gritty. It’s crowded. They don’t take reservations. Go anyway, and get whatever speaks to you. Then treat yourself to a walking tour of local street art along Troutman, Starr, and Wyckoff.

The Catherina Lispuis House, also known as the Cook Mansion, located at 570 Bushwick Ave. in Bushwick, was designated a historical landmark by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, June 25.

Kensington
Smack in the middle of Brooklyn and split in two by the Prospect Expressway, Kensington enjoys a rare reputation for two things that are hard to find in New York City: friendliness and affordability. It’s an ethnically diverse neighborhood in an already diverse area, and shows off its history via Victorian homes and a place called Buzz-a-Rama, one of just a few remaining slot car racing destinations left in the U.S., on Church Avenue, Kensington’s main drag.

Sunset Park

Named for a stretch of green space between 5th and 7th Avenues at 41st Street, Sunset Park has been quietly undergoing upgrades in recent years. In addition to the original park which boasts gorgeous Manhattan views and an Olympic-size outdoor pool, the eagerly awaited Bush Terminal Piers Park will offer baseball and soccer fields.

View from Sunset Park to Manhatton

View from Sunset Park to Manhatton

The city is investing heavily in bringing new life to the industrial buildings on the waterfront. And if that’s not your style, enter the Gothic gates of nearby Green-Wood Cemetary to stroll the massive grounds. The 478-acre property contains the highest point in Brooklyn, the final resting places of artistic notables like Leonard Bernstein and Jean-Michel Basquiat, and a beautiful array of 19th and 20th century statuary.

Rich in history, natural beauty, and charm, Monterey boasts a picturesque setting along the glistening Monterey Bay. It is the perfect destination for a day trip, weekend getaway, or longer vacation. Here are just five reasons why you should include Monterey in your California travel plans.
Unique Monterey Hotels

Have a favorite kind of hotel? You will find that Monterey caters to every taste. Grab a cheap deal at one of these Monterey hotels near MRY Airport or splash out a little more to stay within steps of several of the city’s most popular attractions. Hotel Pacific and the Monterey Downtown Days Inn are both popular options in the downtown area. If you prefer to wake up to a view of the beautiful Monterey Bay, book a room at the Monterey Plaza and Spa.

Palette-Pleasing Dining Options
Thanks to abundant local produce and a bounty of sustainable seafood, Monterey is not short on delicious dining options. Fisherman’s Wharf and Cannery Row – where you will find the likes of the Old Fisherman’s Grotto and the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co – are among the best known places to eat in the city. To discover local favorites, head away from the shoreline to eat at Fifi’s Cafe Bistro, Zocalo, and Restaurant 1833.

Boutique Shopping
If you like to hit the shops, there a variety of places in Monterey where you can flash your plastic. You will find plenty of department and brand stores at the Del Monte Shopping Center, or head to Alvarado Street in the downtown area to discover a divine choice of independent stores, boutiques, and one-of-a-kind stores. If you are a serious bargain hunter, take a short drive to nearby Carmel to visit the Barnyard open-air shopping village and more than 100 artist-driven studios and galleries.

Amazing AttractionsMonteray Shopping

No matter how you like to occupy your time, Monterey has attractions to suit. If you enjoy visiting cultural attractions, head to the Colton Hall Museum or the nearby Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History. If you have the kids in tow, visits to Dennis the Menace Park and the Monterey Bay Aquarium are in order, while everyone in the family will enjoy setting off on a whale-watching cruise. Another must-see are the playful otters that call the bay home. Viewing points include Lovers and Otter Points.

Exhilarating Activities

There are few more scenic places to enjoy outdoor activities than Monterey, but why stop at relaxing on the beach or taking a stroll? Step things up a notch by taking part in some of the exhilarating activities on offer in the area. Try hang gliding over the bay, stand up paddling classes, or skydiving over the Marine National Sanctuary. If you would like to try your hand at scuba diving, the Monterey Bay Dive Center offers courses to suit all abilities.
