For an afternoon away from the big city, but one that’s still only a train ride away, hop over to Carroll Gardens’s main drag—Smith Street. Though condensed within less than a mile there are great shops specializing in everything from nuts to graphic novels to trendy fashions from the cutting-edge (Bird) to the quirky (check out the rubber shoes at Epaulet!), and an assortment of restaurants and bars for an afternoon snack or an after work drink. Mosey one block west to Court Street where you’ll suddenly find yourself in the neighborhood of Cobble Hill. There you’ll find equally cozy-cool venues for indulging, be it by way of stylish garb (AliKat and Néda) or homemade confections (The Chocolate Room and Sweet Melissa). In between the two neighborhoods you’ll see brownstones on every block and trees lining the streets. You might even find movie trailers lined up along the way and hear rumors that a certain someone is filming nearby…oh like maybe…Julia Roberts!
