The buses with the wedding guests drove from lower Manhattan to Brooklyn over the Manhattan Bridge.
The Brooklyn Bridge, the city’s oldest and most beloved bridge, would have been a more direct route, but it’s closed to commercial traffic.
Our caravan approached the Manhattan Bridge by snaking its way through the narrow Chinatown streets. Yes, that is a stretch Hummer!
Our destination was DUMBO (that’s short for Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass), a once a gritty commercial neighborhood that is now home to trendy New Yorkers, expensive boutiques, and chic restaurants.
The reception was at Bubby's restaurant.
Stand on your tippy toes and you can even see the Statue of Liberty.
Originally a pie bakery, Bubby's has scrumptious blueberry and pumpkin pie recipes on their web site.
Since it's sour cherry season in my garden, I'll post my recipe for chunky cherry pie in time for the 4th of July. Also a few of my favorite new summer-worthy wallpaper patterns.
