We arrived in Brooklyn around lunch time after our 7 hr flight from Dublin. We didn’t want to waste a day, and were trying to stay up as long as possible to avoid jet lag. Taking a recommendation from Bernie & Jess Watt, we headed for a much needed sugar hit at the Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain.
