Vincent Cross With Brooklyn Bicycle Co. Wythe

We connected with video producer - and consummate Brooklyn boy - Vincent Cross, and asked him to show us around his home neighborhood of Crown Heights.  He said yes, grabbed a Wythe, and took to the streets to document his favorite spots in the area. Take a peek below to read about his trip.:

 

Golda

Golda Egg Sandwiches

Have you ever loved the food at a place so much, only for it to suddenly close down? That’s what happened to me with Tilda All Day, the former home of my Favorite Egg Sandwich. That was until Danny Nusbaum (formerly one half of TAD) went off on his own to open Golda - a quaint neighborhood joint serving up middle eastern inspired food. My Favorite Egg Sandwich included.

 

 Nagle's Bagels

Nagel's Bagel

If you’re looking for something a little more well, New York, then another one of my go-to is the Classic Nagle from Nagle's Bagel. Think sliced smoked salmon, house-made cream cheese, tomatoes, onions, and capers. Ask for it on a toasted everything and you’ve got it made. Pro Tip? Head next door to Little Zelda for a coffee while you wait for your order.

 

 Brooklyn Pizza Crew Brooklyn Pizza Crew Shop and Pizza

Speaking of New York classics, every good New York neighborhood need it’s very only pizza slice spot. In Crown Heights, I would say it would have to be Brooklyn Pizza Crew over on Nostrand.

 

GuerosGueros Food on Table

In the mood for some Tex-Mex? How about Gueros on Prospect Heights. Home of the best nachos in the neighborhood. On a hot summer day, make sure to get the margarita - ask for half frozen, half shaken.

 

 The Food SermonFood Sermon Bowl

If you find yourself dreaming about the islands, I suggest heading over to The Food Sermon where you’ll meet one of the friendliest faces in the neighborhood. Rawlston Williams’ build-your-own jerk chicken bowls always hits the spot. Take a swig of some of his bottled sorrel and you might just find yourself on The Grenadines.

 

 Hart’sHarts Clam Toast

Named one of Bon Appetit’s Best Ten New Restaurants in 2017, Hart’s is a solid addition to the neighborhood. No matter what the occasion, do yourself a favor and and have whatever chef Nick Perkins recommends. Make sure to pair it with whatever cocktail Nialls Fallon recommends and you’ll be good to go.

 

 DorisBrooklyn Bicycle Co. Wythe Outside of Doris

Close out your evening with a nightcap at Doris. If you’re still hungry, grab a grilled cheese from their nightly pop up and head to the backyard for a table tennis match. If you can’t find me there, check Do or Dive for some late-night Brooklyn fun.

Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata

Roebling
Joseph Abad (West Hartford, US)
Great experience--great fit--great value!

My Brooklyn Roebling checks ALL of the boxes (rack compatibility, STEEL, and most importantly a frame in a 15"!) for an upright (and underrated) commuter/wherever bike. Having this bike for two years, it fits like a glove and is as utilitarian, or minimal, as I want it to be.

Another comment on fit: thinking I was a 14" (in the Lorimer)--Ryan gave me a call and suggested I bump up in size to the 15" (Roebling). He was spot on--and even did me the courtesy of finding a bike shop that "he felt good about" to do the professional assembly.

I love my Roebling so much that I've sticker-bombed it for personal flare. It's not leaving my stable!

Thanks so much Joseph. We appreciate you coming back to share your experiences two years later. We try to build our bikes with longevity at the forefront and it seems our product management team is delivering on that promise. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Perfect Bicycle

As soon as I saw its sleek, vintage look, I knew this was the perfect bike for me. Ordering could not have been easier. And having it shipped to and assembled by a local bike shop made it a breeze. Six weeks later, I love everything about this bike and could not be happier with my choice. I can't say enough about it!

Thanks so much for sharing. The Driggs is a real head turner so we're glad you're able to enjoy it and appreciate the feedback. -Ryan Zagata

Look At That Rack!

I had won a New Belgium cruiser a few weeks ago. It was shipped to me and while in transit, the rack was bent. I located the rack on the website to fit the bike. It shipped quickly and was very easy to install. My overall experience was great! I was informed about this purchase from the moment I ordered it and it was easy to track until it was delivered.

Thanks so much for sharing Johny. So glad you're digging your rack. -Ryan Zagata
