What to Do in Brooklyn

Brooklyn is a borough of New York filled with culture, history, trendy cafes, restaurants, stores, and activities. Founder Houses has several locations in this lovely borough Brooklyn - here are six things to do:


1.     Smorgasburg

Probably the most popular attraction in Brooklyn, Smorgasburg brings 75+ food venues to Williamsburg and Prospect Park on the weekends. Not only do you get to enjoy delicious foods of all sorts of variety, but you can also enjoy the view while eating! Don’t forget to take Instagram worthy pictures!


2.     Prospect Park

Prospect Park is the largest park in Brooklyn with countless of activities and beautiful sights. Enjoy a stroll in the park, a picnic on the lawn, a baseball game on the fields, or even a barbecue at the grill. Want to go to the Zoo? How about a boat ride? Perfect for a sunny day in the summer! Don't forget, the Botanic Gardens are close by!


3.     Williamsburg

Proudly touted as Hipster central, Williamsburg is filled with lively crowds and stores. Enjoy the city skyline views across the river and wander into the streets filled with cafes, restaurants, and stores. Also make sure you check out the street art plastered across the walls!

4.     Thrift Shopping

Brooklyn is one of the best places to go thrift shopping to find hidden gems. Venture into stores like Urban Jungle and No Relations Vintage Store to find vintage pieces to complete your closet on a budget!

5.     Cosy Cafes

Cafes can be found on almost every corner of Brooklyn. However, our personal favorite around our Bedstuy location is MacDonough Café. Not only do they have delicious coffee, smoothies, and sandwiches, but they also have a great atmosphere for working and chilling. Definitely a go-to spot! 


6.     Dumbo

An iconic newer neighborhood in Brooklyn, Dumbo is home to the oh-so-famous Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridges. Make sure to take a pitstop in the lighthouse for some great ice cream! Take your own version of this famous photo and explore the hometown of Daniel Humphrey from the Gossip Girl series!
