Brooklyn that is! I guess I used to be a West Village gal but ever since my big sister moved to Brooklyn it seems the only place I really feel at home in NYC. You can leave downtown to the bridge and tunnel and uptown to the gossip girls because Brooklyn has my heart. I love this more casual, calm, and dare I say authentic New York borough now and thus was more than happy to spend almost my entire visit as a Brooklyn babe. A couple of you asked me to post my favorite spots in Brooklyn and I am more than happy to oblige! Of course I wouldn’t have discovered them without the help of my sister’s and friend’s suggestions! For breakfast or lunch head to Bakeri or Egg. For shopping new check out Bird and for vintage Beacon’s Closet. For dinner eat your heart out at Fette Sau and Five Leaves, and then for drinks and a party stop into Enid’s or Night of Joy. New York, I love you! I’ll be back soon but for now I am home in Paris, which I will be blogging about again soon. So excited for la rentrée…this year is going to be epic…just wait and see! Until next time be sure to follow the facebook fan page, twitter, and tumblr for updates! Kisses!
Great post, I love Brooklyn as well and like to spend time there! It’s much more relaxed than Manhattan and I’d love to live there if I was settling in New York. As usual your photos are phenomenal, my favorite of the bunch is the stacked cookies – looks so delicious!
Love the New York posts! Although I live in the West Village, I work in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – it definitely has a lot of character. Love Bakeri 🙂
Stay safe from the storm this weekend!
while i really am a queens girl at heart since i lived there for a couple of years, some of my nearest and dearest live in brooklyn, and i love it! so glad you had such an amazing time in the states. while it’s obvious you had a blast here, i bet you’re so happy to be snuggling at home with babu.
THANKS SWEETPIE! We are surviving the storm and will make it back to Paris in one piece! Hope all is well!!

I just discovered your fine blog and I will happily follow it. Fantastic photos with a nice appeal. 🙂
Yes yes I love Enid’s. Great photos of Brooklyn! I miss it already. And Rosemary’s is indeed delicious!
Aw, so glad to hear you are an appreciator of Brooklyn (since that’s where I grew up and where my heart is to this day). And I used to depend on Beacon’s Closet for years for cute clothes when I had my first job out of college and worked not far from the store.
love these shots, awesome awesome
Brilliant..Brooklyn is my fave spot as well, I stayed there for the time when I was 16 or 17 and loved it ever since, the people are wonderfully interesting and the places to eat are enjoyable 🙂 Glad you had such a fab time there..wish you a great week dollface!! xoxoxoxo Kizzy
Ha-I was always an Upper West Side girl until my friends had to find apartments of their own in NYC. Now I know just what you mean-Brooklyn is such a favorite these days! Glad the trip has been so gorgeous, and hope you guys were all safe and sound during Irene!
These photos are lovely, that coffee looks especially good.
fun subjects and wonderful photography…<3…XO
I met you a few weeks back in Brooklyn at Alligator Lounge, I’m a friend of Sam’s. Just wanted to say I love your blog. You make me want to move to Paris!
I loved your tour through NY. Your pics keep getting better and better!
Will you be in Paris in Sept? I’d love to finally meet up!
