My Grandparents lived there - my sister and I spent our younger years summers there. Funny leaving the "country" aka CT to go the city. 😜Last summer my bf and I took the subway there for the first time. Had to see that house again. It's been 40 yrs

I went to Brooklyn before it was cool to go to Brooklyn. Does that make me a hipster? πŸ˜₯

Parts of it, yes, very much so (Brownsville, East New York, Borough Park, Coney Island, Crown Heights). Other parts, not at all (DUMBO, Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights).

Brooklyn is on the rise. A lot of new restaurants, new housing, and people are starting to move there over Manhattan. You get more for the money and it's not nearly as hectic.

I sure have. My husband was born and raised in Brooklyn, the home of Junior's cheesecake.

I happen to be the great granddaughter of that same "Junior" best cheesecake on the planet. IMO

Absolutely the best cheesecake on the planet! How cool to be in the family! I hope the cheesecake secrets were passed down to you.

I'll be there this weekend. Dinners on me. And to any other SoH person, in Brk.NY

MrLucchese If curious, ask.
08/05/15 8:54 pm

Are you going to be there on Friday?

MrLucchese If curious, ask.
08/05/15 9:02 pm

Ah. Well then, it's up to you. If you think you'll feel up to it, I'd gladly make the trip. I can't do other days this weekend. How long are you in the area?

I think communicating they SoH is way better than thru how we also do it, thru email.

MrLucchese If curious, ask.
08/05/15 9:07 pm

Well, I can do Friday for dinner, or either Sunday/Monday for breakfast. I'm unavailable on Saturday or Sunday afternoon/night.

Where in Brooklyn will you be? Do you eat steak? If so, I suggest going to Peter Luger's, one of the best steakhouses in the country. Pricey, but amazing.

I live on the LES, work in Ridgewood, Bergen Beach, Long Island City, and a few other places.

MrLucchese If curious, ask.
08/07/15 12:43 pm

Ah, cool. I don't spend much time in that area, but I'm pretty well acquainted with it. Have you lived in New York for a long time?

I've been living in the city proper for 15 years (sort of - for a number of years, I was on the road with NYC as my base), but grew up just north in Westchester.
