Pineapple Street in Brooklyn Heights
We went to Brooklyn Heights to see the designer showhouse on 13 Pineapple Street. I had not been to Brooklyn Heights in a while and I now I’m not sure why! There’s plenty to do even if it just means a stroll on the Promenade with sweeping views of the Brooklyn Bridge and all of Manhattan. We also had a difficult time deciding where to have lunch with so many wonderful choices. For the sake of time, we chose Kogane Ramen which is just around the corner from Pineapple Street. There’s so much to do in Brooklyn…Below is a short list of my favorites.
2019 Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse
Open through November 3, 2019.
My favorite room: the kitchen. I loved the warmth of the Walker-Zanger tile, the pendant over the built-in dining nook with a round table and the alabaster flush-mount above the black sink. The painted floor is based on a textile. The room is designed by Amanda Jesse and Whitney Parris-Lamb of Jesse Paris-Lamb
This pantry space is between the kitchen and the dining room. It’s a shallow space, but they made the most of it by carving out a tiny pantry.
Where to have lunch:

We ended our day in Williamsburg to check out the newly opened Everlane store (which did not disappoint by the way) and also found a wonderful plant shop that’s as beautiful as its plants. We couldn’t leave without coffee and gelato at Gelateria Gentile. I mean why choose when you can get both at one cute little shop? Next time, a visit to Domino Park…have you been?
