As part of our roundup of cool alternatives to tourist traps, we chatted with notable New Yorkers, such as writer Adelle Waldman, about where they take out-of-town guests. Check out her fave Brooklyn spots and read our four-star review of her debut novel, The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.
Adelle Waldman, 37, novelist
“It’s not very original, but I always want to take people to Brooklyn, especially people who don’t know what Brooklyn is like these days. I like taking them to the more mainstream-Brooklyn-y areas—like Smith Street in Cobble Hill and DeKalb Avenue in Fort Greene. There’s also this coffee shop in Clinton Hill, Outpost Lounge. It embodies the laptop coffee-shop culture of New York. I really like the sort of freelancey, grungy, writerly culture of it.”
Waldman’s first book, The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P., is out now from Henry Holt & Co.
