About Escape Brooklyn
Escape Brooklyn is a curated travel guide offering daytrips, weekends and worthy destinations from beyond New York City. We write about and photograph the very best, most unique experiences outside the five boroughs—whether it’s a new boutique hotel on the beach, camping on a sheep farm upstate, a great new brewery or an incredible hike in the mountains.
The creators are Erin and Denny, a creative couple living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. After living in the city for a combined 20+ years, we began visiting Rockaway Beach every weekend for a short getaway, and wondered what else was within reach of a train ride. After another year of traveling up and down the Hudson River on the MetroNorth, we finally bought a car (on eBay!) and have been traveling every weekend since.
We’re always looking for contributors—photographer/writer/traveler types who want to be a part of our passion project. Drop us a line if you’re interested in helping, or you just have some travel tips for us. Interested in advertising with us? We can help you spread the word about a beautiful place, your travel products, events and even real estate. Shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
