"A great place to have brunch and outdoor drinks--try out their beautiful back garden seating. Apartment 138 stands at one end of an exciting stretch of Smith Street in the Cobble Hill neighborhood. Stroll all of Smith between Pacific and Carroll streets for tons of great bars, eateries, and boutiques.

Restaurant:

Bubby's Brooklyn

1 Main St
Brooklyn, NY, United States

"Another Dumbo area favorite (see the extended neighborhood description of the Dumbo General store)-- Bubby's serves up super delicious modern southern comfort and soul food for lunch and dinner. Lunch is a nice time to see,again, the striking Dumbo landscape from the vast windows of this charming loft-like eatery. Across the street from Bubby's, you'll find Fulton Ferry Park, an urban waterfront promenade that is also home to the wonderfully weird landmark ruin of an old tobacco warehouse. (The warehouse is in fact where we first thought of having our wedding!) Bubby's legendary original location in the Tribeca area of Manhattan is also open, if you want to experience a different view and are craving classic American food."

Restaurant:

Dumbo General Store

111 Front St
Brooklyn, NY, United States

"Come experience the striking and unusal topography of an artsy area of Brooklyn known as DUMBO (which is an acronym for Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass). The neighborhood is known for cobble stone streets, vertigo-inspiring angular views of both bridges leading to and from Manhattan island, and long abandoned maufacturing warehouses that were largerly converted to artists' studios and gallery spaces in a cooperative development effort of the '90s. While you're here, enjoy some very good Mexican street food, at Chef Danny Mena's "Hecho en Dumbo," an evening only eatery located in the Dumbo general store (a sign reads "Cafe-bar"). See the website for detailed directions (including a helpful little map of the entire DUMBO area)."

Restaurant:

Ferdinando's Focacceria Restaurant

151 Union St
Brooklyn, NY, United States

"A century-old restaurant and a glimpse into a dying Brooklyn, this Sicilian eatery has braved the storm of gentrification in the area. They know you're not from around here--even if that means you've only crossed a bridge to get there--so don't even try to pretend! But the discomfort of not belonging is greatly eased by the many indulgences the cooks at Ferdinando's are eager to bestow on you--like panelle sandwiches, a fritter of chick pea flour on a flaky egg bread roll topped with warm fresh ricotta...! They filmed Moonstruck on the street in front of this place and it will be easy to see why when you get there."

Franny's Inc

295 Flatbush Ave

Restaurant:

Grimaldi's

19 Old Fulton St
Brooklyn, NY, United States

"A legendary old pizza restaurant on one of Brooklyn's oldest waterfront streets. Just down the street from Grimaldi's is another place to take in a fabulous view of Manhattan: the Walt Whitman landing. After your pizza, grab a coffee from the kiosk at the landing and enjoy the peace. You literary types can read the first few lines of Whitman's "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" forged into the shoreline railing of the landing."

276 Court St
Brooklyn, NY, United States

"Among my favorite things on Court street is this tiny little bakery and cafe where you can get afternoon tea as well as some of the better croissants (come early) in the neighborhood, as well as the most amazing individual cheesecakes. There's another location in Park Slope, too, that we have mapped out for you."

Restaurant:

Sweet Melissa

175 7th Ave
Brooklyn, NY, United States

"Sweet Melissa's second location in Park Slope is in the center of the commercial stretch of 7th Avenue.

Brooklyn Heights Promenade

Columbia Heights & Middagh St
Brooklyn, NY 11201, US

"The city is filled with amazing views, but few can top the ones from this scenic third-of-a-mile stretch along the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. (Crowds will gather here for the 4th of July fireworks!) Postcard-like views of lower Manhattan, South Street Seaport, the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge draw photographers, couples on romantic walks, and New Yorkers who want an inspiring place to sit and think. Sandwiched between pricey Brooklyn Heights properties, pretty tree-lined streets, and rows of conveniently placed benches, the Promenade is also a convenient place to start sightseeing in Brooklyn. On the northern end, you can venture off the path to the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge; to the south of the Promenade, you can explore the cobbled streets of the charming and historic Brooklyn Heights. Or, you can refuel at classic Brooklyn eateries, like the famous Grimaldi"

Atlantic Avenue attractions--start

Atlantic Ave & Columbia St
Brooklyn, NY 11201, US

"Atlantic Avenue is a main thoroughfare that connects the Columbia Point/ Cobble Hill neighborhoods at the west end (shown here on Columbia steet, at the banks of the East river) and the neighborhoods around Prospect Park at the east end, including the neighborhood adjacent to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden (shown as a separate tag). This enormous stretch of avenue houses some amazing markets, bars, places to eat and to shop. If you're feeling like experiencing a typical New Yorker's walk (which nirmally exceeds the one mile mark!), then exploring Atlantic Avenue is a fabulous way to find out about Brooklyn and its layout. The commercial district of Atlantic Avenue starts roughly here at Columbia street and continues until about Third Avenue. We've marked only a few points along the way--again, we're sure you'll enjoy making discoveries of your own! This beginning stretch, from the waterfront to about Smith street is especially known for its amazing Middle Eastern markets and cafes."

Columbia street waterfront

Union St & Columbia St
Brooklyn, NY 11231, US

"A cool urban waterfront expanse ranging from the neighborhoods of West Cobble Hill to Red Hook. (There are several clear views of the 4th of July fireworks along this street!) Walking Columbia street from roughly Kane street at the northern end and Carroll street at the southern end is a great way to see Manhattan in relation to Brooklyn. There are many fun places to eat and drink and shop along the way, all while taking in the waterfront view. When you hit the southern end of this walk in Red Hook, you can loop onto Van Brunt street which follows the shoreline for a brief stretch here and has some interesting shops."

Court street

Court St & Pacific St
Brooklyn, NY 11201, US

"Like Smith street to its East, Court street, in the stretch between Pacific and Carroll streets, has a lot in store: restaurants, cafes, meat and ravioli markets and a few bars and shops. Have a stroll and enjoy!"
