I grew up in a close-knit small town. All the kids rode bicycles after school and built tree forts near the school bus stop. Life moved along and so did I. City to city, continent to continent, I landed in Brooklyn two years ago. The neighborhood vibe changed my version of New York City in the most grand way. I can pop over to Avi‘s shop and have a chat while he repairs my favorite ring (from my klutzy self), Simon will dry clean my dress same-day-service if I really need it, and yoga with Margaret or Sophie will release me from a Manhattan-Hollywood job in one swift asana. The brownstones are beautiful and trees abound. Open the door to Brooklyn, it is time for your meet-cute.
