Pardon the tired eyes, but during our last remaining days of our New York Fashion week adventure, we decided to attempt the "impossible": Wake up early enough to cross the Brooklyn bridge - on a weekend - before it gets too crowded.

Despite our best efforts, we were distracted by the sweeping, picturesque views of


, which stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. The site was unbelievably breathtaking even under overcast skies. I tell my friends that NYC is such a macro city all the time, for reasons such as this. You have to really capture it as a whole to realize its timeless, architectural beauty.

As we made our way up on the bridge, zipping past by rabid tourists and avid cyclists alike, time somehow stood still atop this historical marvel. The Brooklyn bridge, running in parallel to the Manhattan one, was a concrete testament to how history and modernity so often clashed but coexist together. The bustle of people and taxis on both sides of the bridge made this moment more alive than ever.

Then, before you know it, you've somehow arrived on the other side. Destination? Brunch.
