Brooklyn was a dream.

All the things that happened there just couldn’t happen. It was all dream stuff. Or was it all real and true and was it that she, Francie, was the dreamer?― Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn


I love NEW YORK! My friend Abby lives in Brooklyn and she showed me the greatest week that I could imagine! I had to work during my week there, so we decided that I’d follow Abby in the commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Then I worked from coffee shops when I got there. So much fun. I thought the commute would be terrible, but 40 minutes and 2 subways with your best friend is really not that bad. While in NY we went to the Whitney, wandered around Brooklyn & Manhattan, ate at Chobani (yes the yogurt, they have a restaurant), went to the most amazing gym, visited the 9/11 memorial and crossed the Brooklyn Bridge. I couldn’t imagine a better week with Abby. It almost convinced me to move to NY… We’ll see what happens in the future. Abby! I may be coming for you! 😀
