On Saturday we had an utterly failed attempt of going to IKEA in Brooklyn. As everyone else in Manhattan decided to go to IKEA this day, we never got off the island, and ended up with relaxing in the park by Pier 11 in the Financial District. The weather was gorgeous, which resulted in good mood and lots of laughter. How can you not be happy when you’re jumping on top of benches in front of the Brooklyn Bridge?
After a good hour by the pier we went to a whole-in-the-wall french fries place called Pommes Frites. It is far out in the East Village, also known at “The Ghetto” by the Upper East Siders. If you either live in NYC, or plan to visit, I highly recommend this place! I have had a lot of fries in my life, and our opinion was unified by that these were amongst the best we’d ever had.
