I’ll be the first to admit that I hate looking like a tourist even when I am one. I love to pretend I am a local and just make it up as I go along. You will never see me pull out a map, and I try to never look confused or lost. Don’t ask me why I do this - I have no idea either! It is a weird habit I picked up, but I stand by it to this day.
I did, however, let myself become a tourist in New York. Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is a magical experience. While it is very touristy, it is an attraction you cannot miss.
I would highly recommend wearing comfortable shoes, because while it is not a difficult walk, it can seem pretty long if your feet are hurting. I know it is tempting to wear something super stylish and cute since we all know a million photos will be taken, but wear something that you can move around in. I decided to wear a pair of acid wash jeans and a soft short sleeve tee. I paired this look with my velvet booties to give it a bit of flair.
