Help - Your Brooklyn advice and faves greatly appreciated

by davequ

Spending a week in NYC end of this month. I want to spend at least one day + evening in Brooklyn. Will likely walk across the bridge.
I'm thinking about an evening walk by Heights Promenade, Prospect Park, Williamsburg, etc. but have never had the pleasure.

Any sincere Brooklyn "musts" (food, walks, places to check out) or recommendations from local VTrs or VT Brooklyn fans would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much for your help.

Prospect Park and the surrounding nabe of PArk slope. Also Williamsburg is h recommended. Hit 5th Ave and Carroll street and you will be surrounded by restaurants, bars and boutiques in Park slope. For Williamsburg get off the subway of the L train at Bedford ave. The Brooklyn Museum is great too.

Travel Tips for Brooklyn

GO TO CONEY...

by Razorart

GO TO CONEY ISLAND!!!!

Anytime of year. Summer is the most crowded. Fall through early Spring is probably the most haunting time to go, as everything is boarded up and you feel like you've discovered a ghost of an amusement park. Which, actually, you have. Coney Island is but a shadow of her former glorious self. And yet, you can walk around and just feel the vibe of the past.

Make sure you see some of the really old landmarks that are still around before Herr Guiliani tears it down like he did the Thunderbolt.

Child's Restaurant is still there, although boarded up, on the boardwalk. You can also still see the Surf Hotel and some of the signs from older attractions on the older buildings. Visit the Coney Island Museum on Surf Avenue to see the old Steeplechase horses.
If it's summer, play at Astroland! Wandering around Coney this past March with my boyfriend in the rain. Lucking out at the flea market where I found an art deco ashtray and a 1950's decanter.

Wyckoff House

by saw50st8

Henry & Abraham Wyckoff House was built in 1766. Kings Highway was used as a conduit for British troops during the Revolution and this house was seized and used to house Hessian troops, who carved graffiti into a glass door, which has to this day not been replaced.

Although you cannot tour the home (there is a family who lives there), pass by. There is a plaque out front explaining the history of the home, and its nice to see a historic home in the midst of a rather boring neighbourhood.

The house is located on E 22nd st right off of Kings Highway and Ave P.

Artland Bar

by Razorart about Artland Bar

One of the few bars in Williamsburg that is NOT packed on the weekends. Great decor--dark with green chandeliers, old coaches, sometimes live DJs. It's off the beaten path--the second stop on the L train. Whatever!

Some of my favorite restaurants in Park Slope

by jenran1

Rose Water (Mediterranean -- Union Street/6th Ave. ) $$
The Chip Shop (British fish and chips -- 5th Avenue/ 6th St.) $
Al Di La (Italian -- 5th Avenue/Carroll St.) $$-$$$
Dizzy's (for brunch -- 8th Avenue/9th Street) $
Two Boots (pizza and cajun -- good for kids -- 2nd St./7th Ave) $
Nuevo Mexico (authentic Mexico City fast food Mexican -- but don't expect much in the way of ambiance -- 5th Ave/12th St.) $

Excellent Chinese food

by saw50st8 about China Mehadrin

One of the best kosher chinese restaurants I have been to. Although you can sit inside, this is more of a take out restaurant (and they deliver free for minimum of $20). There are lunch and dinner specials (don't know the lunch price but dinner is $10 for soup, entree and rice). They dont mind specializing the dishes with different vegetables and are courteous and friendly. Beef with garlic sauce
