Prospect Park

Park
Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY, United States
Prospect Park

"People who aren’t from New York, including me, can find it very overwhelming and overstimulating, so I lean towards calmer things like walking around Prospect Park, which is in Brooklyn. It's basically like Central Park, but much calmer and equally big."

The Lot Radio

Live music
17 Nassau Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222, United States
The Lot Radio

"The Lot Radio is the first music community I came into when I moved to New York. They have a little plot of land in Greenpoint — it’s a coffee shop and an internet radio station out of a shipping container. It’s a great hub for musicians and music fans, DJs and creative people, and a good way to discover parties, music and art in New York City."

Court Street Bagels

Bagel shop
181 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11201
Court Street Bagels

"New York has a reputation for bagels, and it's real. I'm a little bit spoiled and I don't bother getting bagels outside of New York now. My favorite bagel in the city is Court Street Bagels, in Cobble Hill. I'd say you need to get lox, cream cheese, capers — all the real Jewish delicacies."

Fort Greene Park Greenmarket

Farmers' market
Washington Park & DeKalb Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11201
Fort Greene Park Greenmarket

"Every Saturday, there's a farmers market in Fort Greene Park and a woman has a food stand there [Maíz a Mesa]. She and her mom sell Mexican food. They make really good tamales, and it's different every week."

Barrie

Playground Coffee Shop

Coffee shop
1114 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11216, United States
Playground Coffee Shop

"For tea and coffee drinkers, there's a great place called Playground Coffee Shop in Bed-Stuy. They've got great drinks and do social justice work and community support. So It's a great place to go and support."

Retrofret Vintage Guitars

Musical instrument store
87 Luquer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231
Retrofret Vintage Guitars

"Retrofret Vintage Guitars, in Carroll Gardens, in Brooklyn — that's a place I get lost in every time I go. They have great old guitars and mandolins. You can find any kind of string instrument there."
