New York City, here we come.
It was not quite what I remembered. Each subway station does not come fully equipped with subway maps or helpful personnel. Distances on maps are not closer than they appear.
So, we did the natural thing for two Copenhageners in New York and rented bikes. First trip was a tour of Brooklyn, from Park Slope to Downtown to Williamsburg with all sorts of foodie stops in between, with our friend Doug Gordon who runs Brooklyn Spoke.
|The day we decided to rent bikes.|
Brooklyn lanes on the left and surprisingly calm Manhattan street on the right.
Sure there are potholes deep enough to make a hangover from two days ago instantly reappear. And sure the lanes are a bit reminiscent of playing hopscotch on two wheels, but I'll be damned if that wasn't the most absolutely wonderful way to get around and to experience New York City.
According to my friend Anna, and go to for all things New York, it's also arguably now one of the fastest ways to get around.
Until next time, thanks for the ride New York.
