Last Saturday morning my friends and I got together bright and early! We started our voyage to Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY around 9 am (50 mins from Paramus, NJ). Our first stop was the Botanical Gardens that is free admission from 10am-noon on Saturdays. Typical it is $12 for regular admission and $6 with a student ID. I was excited to get there and see the grounds. I really wanted to see the Japanese Hill & Pond Garden.
Japanese Hill & Pond Garden-
We made our visit quick because we needed to head over to Midwood,Brooklyn, NY about 15 mins away. We had to make it there around 11am because that when the line begins to start at DiFara’s (opens at noon), our next destination.
DiFara’s Pizza- The man pictured below, Dom Demarco, has made every pizza since 1965. This pizzeria is listed on Thillist’s article, The 11 Greatest Pizza Places in Brooklyn, and another one of their articles, Best Pizzarias in America. Zagat rating=4.6.
