Having a big shoe store with all the big brands near you? Only true Shoe love knows it’s a blessing. I discovered the DSW shoe store recently in Starret city and as a shoe lover, I couldn’t be happier. They have everything for everyone. I came here with my wife and we both get what we want. It was my first experience here and it was a good one. They got all the big brands for both men and women. There was a big sale going on, so we got some high-quality shoes at a low price. I even bought one for my nephew. Customer service here is pretty good. The workers help you with patience. My foot size is a little big and it had caused me many great shoes but here they got it all covered. When I selected the shoes, the helper went to the back room and the right size straight away. Such a nice place to buy shoes around. Will come back here in the future.

Everyone needs a hairstylist in their life. I need it the most as my hair needs regular treatment. (Honestly, it looks like a bird's nest when I don’t pay attention lol). It’s quite tough to find a perfect hairstylist, but recently I found one. Maria and her sister is a great hairstylist and I cannot thank her enough. With 2 month, the transformation my hair has gone through is simply phenomenal. She puts all her experience and uses the right products suitable for my hair. I don’t remember my hair styled this well before. Both the sister styles my hair with equal caring and professionalism. There’s a sanitation station for the customers as well. The professional behavior of the staff towards me makes them even more lovable. Maria always treats me like a daughter and makes me feel at home. I don’t think I will be comfortable with anyone else styling my hair.

I have been saving money for a while now to buy my dream car. It’s tough to save money when you live in New York. I don’t’ know a lot about the car stuff so I asked my boyfriend about the best auto car dealer. He changes his car all the time so, he had quite the experience I need. We saw ads for different used cars on their website. I always wanted to buy Mercedes and it was available on their website so we decided to check it out. We went there the next day; the staff member greeted us nicely and took us to the car we were looking for. The Mercedes was just as good as in the pictures. We got it inspected by a professional. He gave us the green signal, so we decided to but it. The (Dean) guy there helped us a lot in getting a good deal. The whole financing process was very easy. Within two days, I got my dream, Mercedes. It’s been two months now, and the car’s performance is phenomenal. I’m glad that I came here.

Starret city doesn't have a lot of entertaining spots but I found Gateway center a good spot to have fun and yummy food on weekends. It's a small shopping mall with many shops but I often come here with my girls to wander around and do some window shopping. Last weekend, I came to know there was an art exhibition so I took out some time to enjoy some artwork and amazing coffee. They often arrange some events and concerts on holidays and Christmas. Each Christmas, they fill the small square with beautiful lights and Christmas trees. This was my only source of entertainment during the depressing COVID-19 days. The guards and security team inside ensure that everyone is wearing the mask. This is indeed my escape spot, though small and underrated, but I love the vibe and atmosphere of this small cozy shopping mall. I hope we get over this pandemic soon so I can come here more often!

One of the best places to just have fun with family, kids, friends etc. is Highland Park. It has plenty of trees and open spaces that your dogs will absolutely love too 🐶. They have recreational areas, they even have stationary barbeque grills. This is a perfect afternoon out with friends and pets. I absolutely loved it when I visited with my family, especially the wonderful view of the water. We had a picnic and a game day, running up and down the place. So much fun!😆
My Girlfriend Loves flowers but who doesn’t. Flowers are a must for every little or big occasion like valentine's Day or her birthday. So, whenever I need to buy her flowers, I just come to Gardenia Flower Shop. This place is a true blessing for me as they have the best selection of flowers. They even have other stuff like Teddy bears, gift cards, chocolates. They basically cover all my needs in this regard. On Valentine’s Day, I ordered a bouquet from this store and she loved it. The arrangements were stunning and beautiful, I couldn’t thank them enough. I buy little bouquets and chocolates from time to time for little occasions and every time they amaze me with their creativity. They have a wide collection in chocolates and teddy bears as well. It is surely a great place to buy beautiful flowers for your loved ones. I myself will continue to come here as long as I live in Brooklyn.

I have a fondness for good books, quiet and low populated places, and this Brownsville Library has it all. I recently moved into Brownsville and was looking for a good library since day one. I had no high expectations because it’s Brownsville (not so populated), but it turned out to be a good experience as I was here to spend some time in peace (I myself have a huge collection of books). I won’t call it a 'book heaven' or a library flooded with books but they do have a good collection of books. I searched through the shelves and found this book ‘Fly Betty,’ and it actually turned out to be great. They also have a kids section (I highly appreciate that because I think such places encourage children to be avid readers). I really loved their life-size chessboard where you can sit, relax and read books. Not a big library but a peaceful place to study in Brownsville - that really serves my interest!

Planning on catching some fish? The best place to do in Brooklyn is Shirley Chisholm State Park. I was in Brooklyn catching up with my college friends. We made a plan to hike the beautiful trails of this park and in the end, catch some fish or at least give it a try. We reached the park, the front look was beautiful. We first started hiking on clean tracks but to add some challenge to it, we went to the gull trails. This trail is full of ups and downs. I am lucky I didn’t break my knee. Make sure to wear the right shoes. After exhausting and tiring hiking, we went to do some fishing to relax ourselves. There were a lot of great fishing spots along the pier. I placed a bet that we won’t even catch a single fish, and I almost won until we caught one after a long struggle. It was truly a fun experience for me. This park is big with a lot of natural scenery and wildlife. I am surprised that I haven’t come here before.
