woohoo–my first dual post. i live in new york city, so “traveling” to brooklyn doesn’t really count as actual traveling. overall, i think brooklyn is a really misunderstood borough to outsiders. every time you say, “oh i’m going to brooklyn” to an outsider (aka my parents + all the californians i know), they shiver. they think the streets are covered in graffiti, dirt and gangsters. yes, there is a lot of street art all around, but that doesn’t make it “scary” per say. i think it gives it personality; it makes brooklyn, brooklyn.
there’s this place i’m obsessed about. but actually, everyone is obsessed. a cute little coffee shop opened off of christopher street a few months ago serving delicious matcha lattes. it’s name? chalait. on instagram, it’s nothing but beauty. almost everyone who stops by MUST instagram their lattes. a cup of latte art, especially green, will garner you a decent amount of likes. shallow, but important.
