Bedford Ave. is the main drag in the hipster mecca of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s always bustling with the fashionable and often times absurd. Lined with bars, restaurants, and boutiques, there’s plenty to see and do, but it can be a bit overwhelming so don’t stay too long. There’s plenty to see and do in other parts of Williamsburg & Greenpoint.

A perfect day in Brooklyn? Wake up, breakfast and an energy drink while I catch up on the Internet. Then a long, roaming afternoon walk with my camera which leads me to a new place to eat and have a beer. Night ends with a few cocktails and entertainment with friends.

If someone was visiting what must they do? New York is best experienced without a strict itinerary, so I recommend picking a few neighborhoods and just allowing the flow of the city to guide you.

A perfect meal? A slice of pizza. It can be a game of chance though, so I’d recommend looking up the good spots in whatever neighborhood you’re visiting.

A little known fact? It seems like %90 of the photographers in NYC live in Greenpoint.
