Who could be better for a CBKini shoot then some real life Brooklyn beach bums? Enter Anya and Niki, two of Brooklyn’s finest. Anya, my little Latvian doll, actually introduced me to Brighton Beach way back when we were classmates at Hunter, and we’ve been beach buds ever since. Niki, my kookla, beaches in other boroughs, other cities even, which I try not to hold against her, but she gets credit for being a purebred Brooklyn gal of Park Slope stock. Niki also turned me on to the “Mexican blanket”, which is by far the most underrated sand accessory, but some how extremely difficult to acquire on the East coast.

So I gathered my girls and we had a good ol’ fashion bash at the beach shack inspired Fresco Gelateria, which also happens to have the best coffee in the neighborhood, not to mention gelato that will change your life… Permanently. Yeah, Italians will tell you they have a perfect breakfast (fresh croissants!), although I’m a regular of the lunch hour for soups and sammiches. Best put, it’s the kinda joint that if you’re passin’ by, hungry or not, you just can’t help but stop in and say hi… Not a lotta places like that left in this city. So grab your “SPF”, shades and a lemonade and have some fun in the sun, even if the ceiling gets in the way.
