Best New Brooklyn Cafe



I apologize in advance to the Boerum Hill readers because I know that this post might make their favorite spot a little more crowded than usual. "Building on Bond" is a great -fairly new- addition to the shriveling restaurant scene in the Smith Street Area of Brooklyn. The fact that this tasteful and well priced cafe/eatery/bar is not near Smith Street gives it a neighborhood feeling that is synonymous with the best that Brooklyn has to offer, community!


I look forward to having brunch, dinner and drinks alone or with friends there and I trust you will too! Bravo!

Let us know what you think???

Do you have any other new spots that you think are top of the list?

Best Boardwalk - Coney Island



The Coney Island Boardwalk is a great place to take a long walk in winter - or any season for that matter. The sea air mixed with the rich history of the area, makes this place very special. There are many different opinions about what to do with the redevelopment of the area and many want us to preserve the magical feeling we get when we are there, but I am sure that this magic will never go away only change with the times as Coney island has done so many times before.







What is the best thing you like about Coney Island?

Here are the most interesting Coney Island photos.
