New York was an obvious first stop. We stayed a week in a loft apartment in Greenpoint & a few days at the Wythe in Williamsburg and loved the area, despite the hipster reputation. Proximity to Bedford Ave & Brooklyn Brewery were definite pluses.
In addition to the great galleries (MoMA, Guggenheim, New Museum) our big NY highlight was the Highline. The park itself is superb, and much of the new development it’s spurned is exciting.
