After I visited Philadelphia a few weeks ago, I took a train up to NYC. I'd never been to NYC before so I figured this was a good time to check it out. I stayed at an apartment in Brooklyn through air bnb which turned out great and was so cheap. The apartment was located right across the street from Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I had one free morning so I wandered around, ate at the cafe (a cucumber, pesto, arugula and goat cheese sandwich!) and snapped some photos.
