I used to be a Manhattan snob, looking down on Brooklyn… that is… until I started spending time there. I’ll never forget my first visit to Park Slope, when I gawked at all of the gorgeous brownstones with their stairs and stained glass still intact. What a fool I’d been not have bought a house there in the early seventies, when it was still affordable.
Well, I didn’t…so I have to be content with visiting. A few weeks ago I got off the subway at Atlantic Avenue and wandered for a hour or so. Here’s a glimpse of the richness and diversity in a ten-block radius of that great borough.
Three cheers for Brooklyn, USA!
