Brooklyn is my home base at this time. I come back to it almost every night and leave it almost every morning. If your looking for specific coordinates I am living in Greenpoint. I tend to stay close to the East river with occassional trips further into the boro with such neighborhoods as Park Slope and Carrol Gardens. Brooklyn has a tough name but I find it to have its pockets of filth and its buckets of wealth and culture.
Theres much to be had here. World class museums, beautiful parks, stunning views of Manhattan and a hip culture uprising. I prize my time spent here and think of it as the now. But I'm sure as the rents sky rocket, I will be moving on.
This photo was taken out my living room window, so this is what lyes across the street from my apartment. I never put two and two together, for the longest I thought the red and white flag was a left over from the popularity of Tommy Hilfiger clothing. Now the style has moved the way of the civil war so I looked at it as a distant past. Greenpoint is 85 percent Polish, thats Polands colors.
