The Good Life in Brooklyn


Roof Picnic With Bike
Originally uploaded by killerfemme

I returned from Austin with a renewed summer motive: to live the good life in Brooklyn. Meaning, I want to enjoy all that I can access here and the wonderful friends that I’ve made over the years. I think it’s easy to get sucked into a daily routine and I have to remind myself constantly to snap out of it a little. So far I think i am meeting my resolution: an inpromtu rooftop picnic last weekend, a bike ride to Manhattan beach, Faust and Manu Chau (outside of the paying area) for free in the park, making watermelon juice and cucumber salad. I love the cities I’ve visited where “the good life” seems more folded into the fabric of everyday life (Austin, Paris, Portland), but I think it is fully accessible here too, it’s just a matter of attitude.

  1. Thanks for describing “the good life” so well. We are still keeping it up, I think. I think it will be more of a challenge in the cold months. Central to the good life in winter will be warm drinks. Hot toddies. Mulled wine. Hot cider. Yessss.
