NEW YORK CITY / Day 4 - 9.1.14 - Williamsburg, Brooklyn (The best day! LONG POST SORRY)

I can most definitely say that Brooklyn is one of my favourite cities! Even though it looks like a run-down, empty place, (which may have been due to the cold weather as well) it's so full of art and culture and (weirdly) picturesque in a creative way! Williamsburg is a cute little town where almost every brick wall or metal fence is covered in graffiti art and it's fantastic. It also has cute little caf├ęs (we stopped at one to have REAL AMERICAN PANCAKES, they were beautiful) and cute little (rather expensive) boutiques and it's just so cute! Also, the visual merchandising in these boutiques were A-MAZING. They were so unique, and the people were absolutely lovely and helpful! Here are some pictures I took in Williamsburg: 

We then visited the "I hate perfume" store which looked at 'perfume' in a very different way... this store sold perfumes of all different scents and smells, from scents of different types of wood, plants, herbs, cakes and chocolates! It was very weird...
Outside the Brooklyn Library!

We then went to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition which was the most extraordinary exhibition I've ever been to. All of the manikins wearing his designs had faces projected on them which pretended to speak and stare at you (and was quite scary actually) but each room in the exhibition was different and his work was absolutely amazing. Fortunately, we were allowed to take pictures!
