I have Brooklyn on the brain. Last week we went for lunch and wandered around a bit afterwards. I am toying with getting a place in Brooklyn Heights (reminds me of Beacon Hill in Boston, my hometown) and this story from Vogue may be the thing that sways me.
We lived for years on the Upper East Side, right on the park. My country-loving family needed to see greenery every day and this worked, for a while. Now we live on the water minutes from the city, but the commute is a bore.
So, we have started to rethink our living situation (keep the cottage for weekends) and Brooklyn is on the list. When I saw what my old Vogue colleague, landscape designer and Vogue Contributing Editor Miranda Brooks, did with her Brooklyn brownstone, especially the outdoor spaces, I am seriously hooked on this borough.
If this is what we decide to do, Miranda will have a new project and neighbor.
