I began this Saturday in DUMBO #Brooklyn, standing on the corner of Water and Main Street, preparing to jog to the Barclays Center, and then over the Brooklyn Bridge.
For those not familiar with the DUMBO area, it’s one of Brooklyn’s most charming and vibrant neighborhoods. It’s also worth mentioning that it’s Brooklyn’s most expensive neighborhood and home to 25% of NYC-based tech firms.
Bear in mind; there are over 500 tech companies in just a 10-block radius. DUMBO is also considered one of the Big Apple’s premier arts districts and has plenty of top-of-the-line eateries.
Now back to my story. 😊
Okay, right as I was getting ready to begin my run, I suddenly decided to make an impromptu trip over to the Brooklyn Bridge Park, which happened to be only two blocks away.
Friends, this is a unique area to see because if you’re standing in the exact spot where I was standing in the below photo, as soon as you look up, you’ll find that you’re literally underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, and when you look to the left, you’ll have a terrific view of the Manhattan Bridge. Love it!
So, naturally, I spent some time looking in each direction, and let me tell you, both bridges were looking even more impressive since the last time I visited this historic place, just a couple of months ago.
Moreover, I ended up jogging in place for a few minutes as my warm-up exercise, which allowed me to continue marveling at the beauty and exceptional design of my two favorite #NYC bridges.
Interestingly enough, I felt like I was watching a live tennis match, moving my head back and forth from left to right.
Did you find yourself doing the same thing as you read the above paragraph? I bet you did. Lol!
So before I started making my way towards the Barclays Center, I decided to take a quick stroll around the nearby Empire Stores to check out the place and grab a piece of fresh fruit. And, of course, I snapped a few pics for my journal and future viewing pleasure.
Shortly after that, I found myself barreling down Flatbush Avenue, getting ready to zip by the famous Junior’s Cheesecake Restaurant, with the Barclays Center now in my direct line of sight!
Well, friends, I will have to stop it here because the maximum character limit for a LinkedIn post is near.
Do you think I should share the other half of this journal entry with you at a later date?
Have a fun weekend! 😊
