Its amazing. Maybe my drawings will be worth millions. He could see the Statue of Liberty. It looked so small. There were many ships and boats on the river. Some boats were full of tourists. They were going to the Statue of Liberty. They were circling Manhattan Island. John reached the first of the two towers. He looked up. It said “1875” on the tower. Vendors were selling T-shirts, CDs, food, and drinks. People were taking pictures and reading plaques. John admired the tower. He admired the view. Half an hour later, he started walking toward the second tower. What a pleasant time he was having! What a pleasant time everyone was having!
Review Brooklyn
I grew up in one of the best cities a person can ask for . I learned how to be competitive and how to interact with people of different nationalities. From the different foods, languages and clothing you cant help but to indulge in experiencing them. If you don't allow yourself to explore in them at least you were expose to them. You have different types of traffic such as the trains stations, bus stations, cars, people walking in the street, multiple vendors. The smell in the air cannot be copied it a mixture of pollution from the vehicles, hotdog carts, food trucks selling Indian, Chinese, and American foods, restaurants from different areas in the world blessing the people with their aroma from their homeland, street stores selling scented oils and incent it is just incredible! There's no other place like Brooklyn. My experience living in Brooklyn has propel me to be able to live anywhere that I choose to live in the world.
Brooklyn is a place like no other. Brooklyn is segmented into little neighborhoods that welcome you into its giant arms. With every little neighborhood there are little delis on every corner with hard working parents, family members, and friendly faces. While the cost of living is competitive, Brooklyn justifies itself with its homey residential areas, safe neighborhoods, and accessibility to anything and everything. Get on an N/D/F/R train and the sky is the limit!
