Take A Trip To A New Hood With Maven (We Checked Out Williamsburg, N.Y.!)By Delaina Dixon | December 13, 2018 | Travel
Living in New York City, we get so caught up in our own neighborhoods — after all, everything we could possibly need is in a four-block┬áradius — that we sometimes forget to check out other┬áhoods just a few miles away. So when I was invited by social media star Micah Jesse┬áto spend an afternoon in Williamsburg, N.Y., I┬ájumped at the chance. But┬áwe┬áwouldn’t┬ábe meeting at the subway┬ástation,┬áwe’d ride in style, thanks to Maven.
Maven is GM’s car sharing service that can be used for an hour, a day or a long-term rental. Cars are located at convenient spots throughout the city, and using one is all done through the Maven app where you find, unlock and start your reserved car. Maven offers upgraded amenities┬áto plug into like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can access OnStar advisors 24/7, and connect on the go with 4G LTE WiFi.
After snaking┬áthrough┬áManhattan traffic, we┬áarrived┬áat our first destination,┬áNorth 3rd Street Market.
This retail hall is filled┬áwith delectable eateries and┬áeclectic┬áaccessory stores like Flower Girl┬áN.Y.C., who gifted us┬áincredible┬áwinter┬ábouquets.
We noshed on the best of the best pizza from┬áDi Fara Pizza, munched on dumplings from East Wind Snack Shop…
…And chowed down on rainbow cookies from┬áDanaΓÇÖs Bakery
We then headed over to┬áBedford Cheese Shop┬áfor a mozzarella making class.
Yes, girl, all you need is curds, salt and hot water!
