Really nice view from the hotel room.
It's a little chilly at night after Florida, coats, hats and gloves required.
Few photos from walking around.
These guys have been around a while and were in surprisingly good condition.
Went to Brooklyn bridge park where there's an awesome older and younger kid's area.
For the much older kids there's a great view of Manhatten including the freedom tower.
All along this old port area the piers have been converted into sports/game parks (five a side football (soccer), basketball and handball (US version) and roller skating, which was pretty cool.
Green fingered Brooklyners have had the same idea as some of the residents of Chiswick.
Cooking lessons at uncle E's
Next day we went for a trip into Manhatten. It's just a short subway ride (half hour) from Jay street.
The size of the buildings never ceases to amaze. But you do wonder what all the people in these buildings actually do.
It was a bit manic in town so went back to calmer Brooklyn
Where we saw these two.
And they have a great Xmas tree with surprisingly few people around, particularly compared to the crazy crowds at the Rockefellor center.
Our stay is nearly over :(
It's been great and we'll definitely be back!
