Kid & Coe bringing us around Brooklyn

After seeing Paris through the eyes of Kid & Coe’s photo editor Bénédicte Lassalle, we’re so psyched they are back with another Instagram tour! This time, they’ve teamed up with talented photographer Nicki Sebastian to find a local’s eye view of Brooklyn; coffee, ice-cream and local parks included, and all tried-and-tested to be family-friendly.

Local favorites

Jane’s Carousel on the Brooklyn waterfront in between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges is a real Brooklyn favorite, especially in the evening when the golden light casts a gorgeous glow over the structure. And don’t miss Red Hook – it’s a colorful neighborhood where you can admire street art, browse new shops and bakeries and wave to the Statue of Liberty.”

Coffee and Ice Cream

“Brooklyn is legendary for its coffee shops. We love Bluebottle on Boerum Hill which serves ‘special milk’ for little ones – a cup of cold whole milk in a to-go cup with a straw – and New Orleans iced coffee for adults. Among many sweet treats, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream serves up pure, organic and fresh ice cream – try the vegan dark chocolate or mint choc chip.”

Park Life

“Even though you are in the big city, there is plenty of space to play. Set over 12 acres and with 125 different species, Prospect Park Zoo is great for all ages. We love it for the petting zoo and the sea lions.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden is rightly popular at the weekend – we’d recommend going as soon as it opens on a weekday morning to beat the heat and the crowds, and to burn off some energy in a beautiful setting.”

“If you’re looking for a nostalgic candy store experience at a shop that also stocks some of Brooklyn’s finest sweets, look no further than Sugar Shop. It’s a child’s dreamland and an adult’s trip down memory lane. And for toys and special souvenirs, Hazel Village’s whimsical, heirloom-quality animals and their tiny outfits and accessories are perfect for little girls.”

Picnic spots

“In the summer, there is nothing better than a Brooklyn picnic. Bring the whole crew to Reed Park at Brooklyn Crab, a sprawling outdoor space featuring mini golf, a sandbox and jungle gym for the little ones, tons of picnic tables, and the best seafood rolls around. For a quieter spot, Cobble Hill Park has quaint tree-lined pathways and a just-large-enough playground for a picnic breakfast with friends.”

Gorgeous photos.. Brooklyn is so charming, isn’t it? And knowing that our kids will enjoy themselves as much really puts us in a peace of mind as parents. If you’re looking for more family-oriented city guides around the world, from Hawaii to Paris, then definitely check out Kid & Coe’s Instagram feed and give them a visit at!
