New York City aka ‘The Big Apple’ is famous for a lot of its attractions and landmarks which draws millions of visitors each year. From the Stature of Liberty, Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Center and the like, it’s no surprise it is also home to a large mix of culture, language and lifestyle. New York City has evolved over the years to become home to an eclectic group of people all the while maintaining its position as having something to offer to everyone.
Although Manhattan has stolen the scene for many years, Brooklyn is fast becoming the heart of New York. With a population of approximately 2.5 million and the new home of the Brooklyn Nets (Barclays Center), this New York borough is where all the action is. What makes Brooklyn unique is in its diversity and offering of every ethnic group New York has to offer.
Brooklyn is also home to a new ‘trend’ called the Everyday People Brunch. A monthly brunch event that occurs the second or third Saturday of each month, powered by fashion, music, an eclectic mix of people and fine cuisine courtesy of Bravo TV’s chef Roble Ali. The Everyday People Brunch can be tagged an international fest of food, fun, music, fashion and socializing.
Celebrity chef Roble Ali of Roble & Co, Saada Ahmed, Cherie Camacho and DJ Moma started the trend in the Spring of 2012 and it has been a huge success since, with celebrity guests such as singer/songwriter Solange Knowles, rapper Bun B and other famous faces dropping in to join in the festivities.
