My girlfriend Rachel moved to Carroll Gardens neighborhood in Brooklyn six months ago from Jersey City. Scott Babe & I checked out her new digs this evening and were blown away. She’s got the top floor of a narrow but charming brownstone. It was built in 1910 with the original winding staircase. The 3 floors up didn't feel like a “walk-up” -- it was hip. I loved how Rachel decorated and made the apartment her own. Her vintage purse collection hung beautifully above her bed, against the exposed brick. Her bedroom windows had a gorgeous cityscape view and she has the choice of keeping her wooden shutters open or closed. So cool.
Look who we met when we left Rachel’s apt. for dinner!
Misha is 15 and the neighborhood baby. Scott Babe is doing a backhand pet :-)
I was grateful to Kim for organizing this delicious dinner at Convivium Osteria in Park Slope. It was great to catch up with her and her husband Brian and do more catching up with Rachel. :-)
