So, to follow up on the we're-looking-for-an-apartment post, we have found one! It's in Greenwood Heights, which seems like a nice neighborhood, though I don't know much about it. I'm excited to move to Brooklyn, since I haven't lived there before, and a lot of my friends do.
Hopefully now I will finally, finally, finally catch up with LJ, since I am no longer dealing with looking at apartments/finding brokers/parents in town/teaching all at the same time. It is SO EXCITING to have a weekend where I have enough time to write my lectures for the week ahead, instead of doing them all the night before, I CANNOT EVEN TELL YOU. Which is kind of pathetic? But happy-making!
Anyway, Brooklyn! Does any have any recommendations for restaurants/stores/coffee-shops in the area, or other feelings about it?
