“I live in Brooklyn. By choice. Those ignorant of its allures are entitled to wonder why.” -Truman Capote

Here is a great article written by the folks over at Gothamist explaining why Brooklyn gets so much hype and how it often surpasses the expectations set for it. Prospect Park, listed as number 10 on this list, is a short drive or a 30 minute walk from where I grew up.

Greenwood Cemetery, number 4 on the list, is spitting distance from my childhood home, hence Greenwood Heights, my ‘nabe.

Gothamist shares 100 reasons why Brooklyn lives up to the hype. You can check it out here: http://gothamist.com/2011/06/28/100_reasons_why_brooklyn_lives_up_t.php#photo-1

About Maya

I like words like "labyrinthian," "kerfuffle," and "serendipitous" because they're mellifluous. I love poetry, pumpkin ales, sangria, long summer days, Fall foliage, going out of my way to step on crunchy leaves in October, live music, Jazz, Salsa dancing, theater, film (foreign and indie), the arts (myriad varieties), dance (in theory and practice) and any place where I can sit outdoors and take it all in.
