day in brooklyn
i'm going to be in three areas of brooklyn, bensonhurst/borough park, cobble hill, and greenpoint, for just one day. i would like to know which places are a must.
already on my list are:
court st pastry
what else is a must??
I made special effort to get to Blue Marble on a brooklyn day excursion and didn't find it worth it--ice cream was nothing special, very expensive, thought the place was going to be really cute and comfortable looking from the look of their website, but actually thought it was a real dump--but I guess that shabby chic dirty look is "in" for areas of Brooklyn...I lover retro, but not cafes or restaurants where they don't clean the tables, the floor is dirty--the place looks like it's falling apart--it's one thing to have a farmstand looking place out in the country--it's another to have a place like that on a commercial strip...they have nice signage that's about it--and the filthy toys in the back, were just a total turnoff--sorry, it wouldn't bother me so much, if the ice cream was about 1/2 the price and really great, but it was okay--I've had much better elsewhere...Villabate, though was worth the effort...
