Yesterday I had a nice walk from the train to meet up with Jon and his friends at a restaurant in Fort Greene. Fort Greene is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Brooklyn and I had to stop and take a couple photos of the brownstones that I kept passing. Block after block are filled with these buildings, covered in ivy and equipped with sprawling stoops that put my tiny Greenpoint stoop to shame. It was a really idyllic walk - not too warm with a constant breeze and the sun hitting the faces of the brownstones in the best possible way.
It felt very old world and romantic.
But then I happened upon a large stack of furniture encased in plastic and duct tape due to what I could only assume were bedbugs.
That totally killed the mood.
