scenes from brooklyn

on the street

Brooklyn was a side of New York I didn't expect. In Williamsburg there were hardly any taxis, tourists only here and there, and throughout the day it was easy to find quiet.


home for the week

My room had big, wide-stretching windows so I always woke up with the sun.


After spending most of the day in Manhattan, everything just felt slower here. I found my new favorite restaurant, we spent the last night singing in the streets, and upon looking across the East River, the city felt worlds away.

lunch and a view
