On weekends we love to take the NY Ferry to Atlantic Avenue and explore parts of Brooklyn you don’t really see unless you live there.
We get off at Pier 6/Atlantic Avenue by the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Quickly head away from the water and all the tourists and walk up Congress Street to Henry, where we make a right just to be able to enjoy a little street called Verandah Place. If I ever moved from where we live now, I would love to move here, just because of the pretty address and the beautiful little park there: Cobble Hill Park.
Last time we went, we stumbled on a wine-bar called JUNE, and how could you not love a place with a name like that too. It’s a few blocks away from Verandah Place on Court by Baltic street. JUNE was really empty when we passed by. We thought they were closed until we realized they had a magic little garden in the back.
We had a couple of glasses of a great natural wine and cheese with rhubarb jam and marinated olives from their day-menu. Now we want to go back and try their evening menu. Very soon.
Magic for real.
