our last full day day in nyc began at irving farm coffee roasters. we spent a few mornings here, they really did have some great coffee + food, and there's a few throughout the city. this morning was super fucking cold, it even flurried a little when we got into brooklyn. i don't know how that bride made it through those photos, but she was too cute.
my friend is OBSESSED with tea, so of course we had to pop in bellocq. we actually walked around the building a couple of times, it looked like an empty warehouse, but inside was the prettiest tea shop + tea room. we sniffed all kinds of white, green, black, oolong, and rooibos. we also asked the girls working there for a lunch recommendation and wandered over to a delicious place in greenpoint called glasserie. whatever i had was fucking amazing, i remember that much!
we ubered over to williamsburg to shop the boutiques and came across this amazing bookstore that had an egggleston collection of books for $1000. a lot out of my price range, but definitely great to see in person. we ended up in a bar that had a half pipe caged off inside of it. we sat at our table watching the skaters for hours and drinking til we couldn't anymore. we met a couple of sweet long island couples and danced with people we'll never see again. perfect way to end a trip.
i was hoping to go back this year, but maybe next. there's so much to do in the city we couldn't find time to go to any of the big art museums. and that is a must see for me.
