Sharing some snapshots into my recent weekend in Brooklyn, visiting my college roommate, Bridget, and friends Sam, Taylor and Agne. The last time I visited was back in 2013 when the ole RWU crew ran the Brooklyn half (#RWUrunsBrooklyn). After a late arrival Friday night, we snacked, sipped prosecco, watched the Olympic opening ceremony and proceeded to chat until 3am -- lots to catch up on!
Saturday was spent in Manhattan, walking the High Line (see more of my pictures from the High Line in this post) then touring Bridget's latest project -- a 50+ story high rise currently being built over the existing and fully functioning Hudson Rail Yards, its pretty amazing. Bridget is a project manager for a large construction and development company -- you can read more about the awesome project here.
Then we headed downtown to grab lunch at Brookfield Place before heading across the street to see Calatrava's design for the new transportation hub at ground zero. (Last time I visited Calatrava's work was during our trip to Copenhagen, via a day trip Sweden). Next, we had to stop and see the awe inspiring 9-11 Memorial. Finally, we walked down along the Hudson to Pier A for an afternoon beer (and shelter from the rain showers), before jumping on the subway back to Brooklyn for dinner and drinks! After a quick breakfast and stroll around the neighborhood, I headed out early Sunday...
