Coming to Brooklyn in late May - need your help!

Hi all!

My DH and I will be coming to Brooklyn for the first time in late May. We'd like to learn a little - or lot, lol - before we get there.

We plan to start with driving from Rhode Island where we're camping to the Brooklyn Tablernacle first. Then we'd like to know some suggestions for a good local place to eat and a couple of must-sees. If we get a wild hair to come in town very early - is there a great place to get breakfast before going to the Tabernacle?

We'd then like to take the subways to see Chinatown and possibly the Statue of Liberty.

Separate Statue questions: How long is the wait? If the wait is long is there just a boat ride we can take to see it?

Ok, that'll get me started! :)

Thanks so much!

1st, just be a little careful by the brooklyn tabernacle, while fulton st is safe there are some shady spots around there. Breakfast? Go to montague street, it's right by there, lots of great places to eat. Montague st also good for dinner, lots of places, and almost none of them are chain stores.

AS for lady liberty, get there early or book ahead, otherwise you will not get on.

hope this helps!
