Sunday Wanderings: Brooklyn Churches, Central Park and Chelsea Market

One Sunday morning in New York I couldn’t sleep anymore and took a little wander in the Crown Heights area and headed towards the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. I don’t know what made me think that it would be open at 8am but it … wasn’t. So instead I grabbed some coffee on Washington Ave and explored what is Brooklyn’s greenest, most residential and family friendly area. In between all those Dads who got their kids ready for Sunday school and ambitious joggers leaving me in a cloud of aftershave, I’ve been invited to about 10 church services within half an hour. I would have gladly gone to every single one, promise!

Instead, I went to one on the Upper West Side, got lost plenty of times (always reassuring to find out I’m still the old one) and met my brother in Central Park. There’s so much to see, both in terms of people and nature, that you tend to forget that there are dirty streets, big crowds and car horns a few steps away. Oh well. While walking further south, we passed Chelsea and its famous Chelsea Market that has some really original foodie stuff going on. From there it was only a few minutes to the bustling Meatpacking District and High Line Park where we could watch the sun set in Lower Manhattan … between flowers and old train tracks. As you do.
