|thanks for this photo joanna. it's stunning!|
Joanna did a good job capturing the time we spent in DUMBO together last Saturday. It was the best way to spend St. Patricks Day. Manhattan suddenly had a lot of adults wearing green shirts and beads and shouting WHOHOOoooo for absolutely no apparent reason. But come to think of it, Toby, Ella, Oscar, and Owen did their fair share of whoohoooing at the playground and on Jane's carousel too. I didn't mind it so much from them though.
But I know there's more to Brooklyn than DUMBO. I'm ready to delve in.
First, I'm obsessed with this map that tracks the status of the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. So far there's eleven trees that have had their first bloom, two that have already peeked, and tons that are still in pre-bloom. I can't wait to see the cherry blossoms again!
My friend Shoko is planning on taking me on a tour of Williamsburg in April. I better dress the part! I have some time. From my understanding, this is hipster central. If only I needed glasses or could grow a beard . . .
And finally, the Brooklyn Flea. Never been. Our friends Nick and Whit have agreed to sponsor a huge shopping spree for us. Isn't that right Nick?
But I know there's more. What about Brooklyn Heights? Prospects Heights? Park Slope? Fort Greene? What should I add to the list?
