District Guide: Brooklyn, New York City

Being born and raised in New York City, blogger Jeremy has many places to talk about—particularly in Brookln. So many places to shoot, but even more places to eat! Below, get to know his favorites.

Jeremy Mitchell is a full time pho­to­graph­er and blog­ger from Brook­lyn. He works with fash­ion cli­ents like Mr. Port­er, Matches­Fash­ion and Kardo, how­ever he likes ven­ture out onto dif­fer­ent styles of shoot­ing oth­er than fash­ion. Cur­rently Jeremy is work­ing on a per­son­al pro­ject that’s allow­ing him to dive into the world of bal­let.

Being born and raised in NY, Jeremy has many places to talk about. So many places to shoot, but even more places to eat! His favor­ite Jamaic­an res­taur­ant called VEE’S for example, which is loc­ated at 967 Nos­trand Aven­ue, Brook­lyn.

But there’s so much more to find out about NYC and Jeremy him­self, too!

Which crazy memory will forever be con­nec­ted to your favor­ite district?

I was born and raised in Brook­lyn, NY. Grow­ing up I rarely saw changes in neigh­bor­hoods and com­munit­ies. It’s not until recent years I star­ted noti­cing dra­mat­ic changes all over the city. Its crazy how change can hap­pen so quickly and its funny how the areas you would avoid like a plague have become a safe haven for many newcomers.

How do you spend a Sunday in your district?

Usu­ally around this time of year on Sunday’s, after I attend my reli­gious func­tion, I bike over to Brook­lyn Bridge Park and just vibe out. A blanket, pen, paper and McDonald’s apple pie sets the mood for me honestly. 

Why does your job per­fectly match your city?

Everything you need is here. Lit­er­ally everything. The per­fect back­drops. The people. Style. Everything.

Where do you get inspired?
If I’m not on the inter­net look­ing for inspir­a­tion or trav­el­ing in search for inspir­a­tion, I’m prob­ably people watch­ing in Down­town Brook­lyn, Wil­li­ams­burg or Soho.

The best place to people watch is…

People watch­ing is one of my favor­ite thing — to Down­town Brook­lyn would be my favorite. 

The nicest vin­tage clothes you can find at…

Def­in­itely down­town Brook­lyn. There are vin­tage and thrift shops on every block. I have a buddy named Ouigi who owns a store called The Brook­lyn Cir­cus (@Thebkcircus) on 150 Nev­ins St. It’s a mix­ture of vin­tage gar­ments as well as mod­ern day pieces. It’s well worth the vis­it; it also smells nice.

My urb­an oas­is is…

My urb­an oas­is would be the 1 Hotel at Brook­lyn Bridge loc­ated in Dumbo. It has everything you need for a sol­id sum­mer day. It has a great rooftop bar that over­sees a beau­ti­ful view of the city. A cozy cof­fee shop with a mono­chro­mat­ic interi­or. Three dope bars you want a drink in. A lounged area with occa­sion­al live music from NYC loc­als. Per­fect for a quick shoot.

When you have to work on your laptop best go to…

When it’s time to pop out the com­puter the best place to be would have to be at Dap­per Stu­di­os (@DapperStudios). It’s been some time since I’ve been there due to an over­load of work. But that’s nor­mally a place where cre­at­ive indi­vidu­als go to get work done. 

The most pho­to­gen­ic place of the city is…

The most pho­to­gen­ic place of the city is Dumbo. It’s a tour­ist attrac­tion. 300k vis­it­ors a week. From Wed­dings, engage­ments, gradu­ations to fash­ion edit­or­i­als. Everything is shot there because it’s so cine­mat­ic and photogenic.
