3. The Brooklyn Flea– If heaven was a flea market, this is exactly what it would look like.

4. Canal Street Shops- No words…just incredible shopping.

5. Bergn– Good food, good beer, hipster-cafeteria style and adjacent to the heavenly flea market mentioned above. What more can you ask for?

6. Brooklyn Botanical Garden– Complimentary on Saturday mornings and even stunning in the Winter. A perfect break from the chaos.

7. Two Hands– Smooth coffee and delicious food in a lovely atmosphere.

8. Kobrick Coffee Co.– Best coffee ever! Yelp did not dissapoint with this one.
