3 Days in Brooklyn for First Timers

Organisiert von Claire Bullena former Brooklyn resident (and forever enthusiast).

There’s nowhere else quite like Brooklyn. Though my 6-year stint living in New York City began in Manhattan, it wasn’t long before I made my way south. The borough’s combination of old-school character and cutting-edge arts, dining, and nightlife scene made for a totally irresistible blend.

Today, Brooklyn is more polished (and gentrified) than when I first relocated to the borough, but it still offers that magic mix of classic New York sensibility and boundary-pushing edge. Discover its wide-ranging neighborhoods, food, and local charm on this 3-day itinerary.

New York weather tends toward extremes—watch the forecast, and prep accordingly.

If you only have time for one thing, make it a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Day 1

There are few better introductions to Brooklyn than the 1.1-mile (1.8-kilometer) walk along the [Brooklyn Bridge]. Setting off from Lower Manhattan, you get to stretch your legs and soak up the ambiance as you approach the borough—while admiring spectacular views of the (New York Harbor)(https://www.viator.com/New-York-City-attractions/New-York-Harbor/overview/d687-a21118#overview) and Manhattan skyline.

If you’ve worked up an appetite, you’re not alone—it’s tradition to head to nearby Grimaldi’s and feast on classic New York pizza. If you’re after a more eclectic experience, it’s a 10-minute cab ride to ever-trendy Williamsburg. Set off on a walking tour to indulge in pierogi, barbecue, and, yes—pizza.

Day 2

Graffiti and street artists from around the world flock to Brooklyn to adorn the borough’s walls and surfaces with their colorful, sometimes short-lived, works—and a walking tour is the ideal way to discover them. Set off through mural-bedecked Bushwick with a guide, and learn how to spot various artists’ signature styles.

Afterwards, extend your cultural day out with a trip to the Brooklyn Museum (a local arts destination since 1897), about a 20-minute cab ride from Bushwick. Or, if the weather behaves, extend your time in the great outdoors by exploring Prospect Park or the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

Day 3

Compared to Manhattan (which measures 23 square miles, or 60 square kilometers), Brooklyn is a whopping 71 square miles (183 square kilometers). You can see more of the borough’s variety and highlights on a half-day bike tour—and look forward to visiting neighborhoods such as Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Red Hook, and Fort Greene in one jaunt.

Afterwards, let loose like the locals do on a very Brooklyn bar crawl. Make your way to Williamsburg, and enjoy a celebratory final night exploring gastropubs, cocktail lounges, and popular drinking dens.
