This Thursday at the Brooklyn Historical Society, take a trip through 20th century Brooklyn with map cataloger Lisa Miller.

This summer, the annual Books Beneath the Bridge series takes six of Brooklyn’s best stores and brings them outside to Brooklyn Bridge Park for author readings.

Then She Fell, an immersive theater experience in Williamsburg, throws the rules out the window.

Park Slope's The Black Sheep Pub boasts a large space, plenty of bar food and a short walk to Barclays Center.

Ah the New York City Checker Cabs, those glorious vessels that are now a vestige of NYC’s past.

Breakfast might be the most important meal of the day, but for those 1 a.m. hunger pangs head to Omonia Café.

In Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood, you’ll find some of the best doughnuts in the city at Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop.

Every night on my way home from work, I walk by a bar that’s always hopping: Bay Ridge's The Salty Dog Restaurant Bar & Grill.

Sometimes rising early is hard (yes, even in a city where each day offers marathon excitement and countless cultural opportunities). The solution? As a born and bred New Yorkah would say it: caw-fee. Coffee, coffee, coffeee. And lots of it. Get it at Bushwick's Swallow Café.

Crammed into a one-room shop in Crown Heights, newly opened Hullabaloo Books’ shelves reach all the way to the ceiling and are filled with classics and contemporary fiction alike. I visited recently for their monthly reading series Shelf Life, where I saw some of my favorite writers read for a small audience of no more than 20 people.
