This past weekend has been non-stop apartment viewings on the east & west side of the East River. As I keep viewing various units all over New York City, I’m questioning not only whether to stay or move but also whether to even stay in Manhattan. All things considering, I have fallen in love with Park Slope, Brooklyn. Aside from the stroller mafia, Park Slope is one of the nicest neighborhoods I’ve encountered in New York in general. The brownstones, the cafes, and glorious Prospect Park, are luring me away from the 100zipcode .
Yesterday, on my way from one open house to another I stopped in for a delicious cappuccino at Cafe Regular…
Today after several unsuccessful viewings in Manhattan’s East Village, I crossed over to Brooklyn’s Park Slope again and had a delicious brunch at Cafe Dada.
I had a scrumptious tri-color crepe & a bellini. The peach puree was so fresh and lifted my spirits as I continued my search for a fab pad…
The tri-color crepe was a three level crepe that included a layer of a spinach flavored crepe, a beet flavored crepe and a regular flavored crepe with ham and swiss layered in between the crepes. Delicious!
Here are some of the other tasty nibbles on the menu…
I’m back in the 100s now and relaxing after a long day of bouncing around! Saw some promising spots in Brooklyn, but settling in with some more champagne & the Golden Globes while I ponder my next move! Wish me luck
