Atlantic Avenue Tunnel


Through a hole in the street down a ladder and into a pool of mud. Some bending and twisting and another stair. Suddenly in another world. A large cool and dusk brick tunnel opened up like Wonderland. The world's first subway tunnel - right under Atlantic Avenue.

After being sealed and forgotten for some hundred years the tunnel was discovered by Bob Diamond in the 80s. The very same Bob Diamond who was our guide. An absolutely amazing character who made us laugh and cry equally. And who told the fascinating underground story of Brooklyn and New York. An absolute must.

Vertigo

Rocking sofa with dog


On sunny spring sundays these rocking sofas are made for brunch. Constantly ordering yummie pastries coffees sandwiches and juices from the supercute cafe with the way too tacky name ciao for now.

Wall decoration

Yesterday I went to artists and fleas to check out the vinyls. A good friend of mine has eight dollys on the wall and of course I am greatly inspired. Looking at the black and white madonna the vendor instantly became interested in my mission. Soon we agreed on 70ies boogie so next week there will be a special collection only for me.

Spuyten Duyvil mail box

Fifties nostalgia


Just opposite of Fette Sau but oceans apart is Spuyten Duyvil. Bar and cafe with a very streamlined fifties interior. Great wines great beers but do try the ginger soda for some additional authentic feeling.

For the pork lover


Fette Sau reminds me so much of Delicatessen. Almost creepy but still warm and cosy. Dark and yellowish with rough interiors and brusque staff. Mainly meat and only pork is served straight on the tray and tastes great. In other words it's a must.

Walking the bridges


Recommending biking as the main transport in New York I still love walking for pleasure. Last Monday me and a friend strolled Williamsburg Bridge over to LES and SoHo. Shot some absolutely amazing photos and somehow this simple one became my favourite.

Aurora in the morning






















Instead of waiting in line an hour for brunch at Egg - stroll a few blocks and have an amazing breakfast at Aurora. Supernice and pro staff. Truly recommend to share a Frittata and a French Toast.

Back biking in New York


Strolling New York since a few weeks it is high time for me to post again. Eightish tonight me and my golden cruiser came down south from Midtown to Lower East in the evening rain. The tiny drops on my face while quietly rolling down the street was plain beauty.
