A brief photo tour of 4 days in New York

Allison and I ate SUCH good food but I didn't take pictures of any of it (except one bagel). That's more Allison's department and I'll ask her if I can post some food shots soon. Allison's the kinda girl who not only hauls her amazing SLR around Manhattan but a Holga camera as well. She's committed and her photos are beautiful. Thanks to a last minute Facebook call for help I got perfect restaurant recommendations for Brooklyn, which is where we stayed. Greenpoint, to be exact. Day 1: mexican food at La Superior in Williamsburg (thanks Alan!), Day 2: pizza at Paulie Gee's in Greenpoint (thanks AirBnB host!), Day 3: South African food at Mandiba (thanks Sam!). To back up a little, Allison and I inhaled iced coffee from Blue Bottle in Williamsburg after our red eye and before we even set our suitcases down. That stuff is The Business (looking at you Brian). The Cindy Sherman exhibit at MOMA was beyond. I absolutely flat out loved it and could stare and stare and stare for hours. She's such a cool genius. One last New York-y thing: UNIQLO: Where have you been all my life?
