Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge at Night

Brooklyn Bridge at Night

In our quest to uncover photo opportunities on our home turf before journeying to Europe next week, Tineey and I decided to take a night stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge into Dumbo. I’ve lived and worked in New York City for four years yet this was my first time walking the Brooklyn Bridge – maybe my third time in Brooklyn ever even (I obviously didn’t get out much). After making it a priority to get out of this work – drink – sleep cycle, I knew that this spot, as cliche as it is, was a must-see, must-photograph destination. No big deal to most native New Yorkers, but there’s a serenity here (especially in the evening) that makes it that much more special.

Walk down past the steps at the end of the bridge once you cross into Brooklyn and take a quick left. You’ll find a charming neighborhood called Dumbo. There’s a street down here where you can see the Empire State Building peek through the Manhattan bridge, aligning perfectly in the middle. You’ve probably seen this shot hundreds of times on Instagram.

Keep walking for a few minutes and you’ll come across the Brooklyn Bridge Park – a sweet little spot perfect for photographs of lower Manhattan. But how does the view compare to that of Jersey City? Compare them here.

How amazing is this night view? Take a few minutes, soak it in, then make the trek out. If you don’t feel like walking back across the bridge, the you can hop on the F train nearby to get back into Manhattan.

Just a big THANK YOU to you, my friends, and invite you to read the 100+ comments left on my recent post: 10 Things You Need to Learn to Start Living the Life of Your Dreams. I am unbelievably inspired, and forever grateful for your strength and courage, but also proud at how much of a positive community this blog has become. It would not be ANYTHING but a measly personal portfolio without YOU. So I'm spending the next few hours responding to each and every one of the comments left on that post so each of you knows that I am here, listening and most importantly inspired by YOU. 
The link is in my bio for an easy click-through. Thank you, and welcome to the family. With love, from #NYC. ?
The storm will pass. Never lose hope. I believe in you. ?

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” – Steve Jobs
When everything goes wrong and life seems like it's falling apart, have hope in knowing that you are being broken only to become stronger.  Strength has never been and never will be a gift - it is built and earned with blood, sweat, tears and hard work. When no one else seems to believe in you, you will find the strength to believe in yourself - and when you do, my love, you will have the power and perspective to make all of your dreams come true. 
With love, from #Firenze. ?
If you're looking to create a career for yourself, college cannot just be about the classes you take - classes don't give you a career.

I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but you must keep your faith in something greater than you, and keep doing what you love. Do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world. Thank you to @tresemme for hooking up the hurr & inviting me to be a part of the team for @teenvogue x @hercampus #collegefashionweek
Big things often have small beginnings. I remember waking up three years ago and deciding to start a blog having no idea where to begin, but I did the first step of making any dream a reality - starting. You don't have to have all the right answers to every question that may come up along the way (there's Google for that) - you just need to begin.

Honored to be representing @tresemme at the @teenvogue x @hercampus #collegefashionweek show tonight with my little sis @timberwar :)
Hello, Saturday. You deserve a proper brunch in bed. ?
