Brooklyn, New York

When we go to New York we stay in Brooklyn for family reasons. Our favorite place to stay is the
Nu Hotel on Smith Street, just off Atlantic Avenue.

 We have now stayed there many times and have always been happy with the service and the rooms.

It is on Smith Street and so has lots of interesting restaurants within an easy walking distance.
It is also very close to a subway so getting into Manhattan is quite convenient.

This time we shopped in The shops at Columbus Circle.  Think sales!!
We can thoroughly recommend Bouchon as a place to eat there.

Lunch was light and great

followed by not so light  desserts....

 and the view to Central Park is magnificent

high above the chaos of Columbus Circle.....

We were en route to a week end wedding in some rustic cabins in a  New York State park, not too far from the city,
Camp Baker on Lake Sebago. This is a fantastic location for a family wedding which has lots of children in tow.
The scenery around the lake, the boats, the little beach were all delightful.
However the state needs to put a little money into the maintenance of the rustic cabins

which could be delightful. It was originally set up by New York banks as a weekend place for its employees.
