You know what I have? Keys to the new place! Come Monday I will be a resident of Prospect-Lefferts Garden. I'll be able to walk to the park, the Botanical Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and two subway stops from Park Slope. My morning commute will be
But there's things I'll miss about my old neighborhood and building:
- The fourth floor walk up. Those four flights of stairs were my poor man's gym. I'll have to buy a bike so I can go biking in Prospect Park otherwise there will be a continual Ass Crisis.
- The roof. The views of Manhattan were breathtaking.
- Life Cafe. Only a three minute walk from my loft. I made lots of friends, drank lots of beer, and ate some of the best pub food.
- L Train. It was a fickle mistress, but it took me to some great restaurants and bars along Bedford Avenue.
Things I won't miss:
- The dog shit.
- The thin walls.
- The hot summers.
- The industrial vibe.
Au revoir East Williamsburg Industrial Park.
