In the City…..
For many, many years I have had a recurring dream that I am lost in NYC and find myself wandering around a neighborhood with enormous houses. In my dream, I think I must be really, really lost because the landscape is so different from what it normally is. It wasn’t until I moved to Brooklyn that I realized that the Ditmas Park neighborhood looks very much like the dreams I have had. This is about 10 minutes from my house, and is a little bit of heaven surrounded by a neighborhood that looks nothing like this. The minute I saw this, I had deja vu. I want a front porch like this one day. I’ll be drinking wine and watching the world go by. This house isn’t even the nicest one, or the biggest one, but I love it.
I hope that I’m demonstrating to all of you the diversity in the city that I live in (especially Brooklyn), and why I love it so much.
