Yay for Brooklyn

Can I just say that I love Brooklyn? I find myself wanting to stay close to my new neighborhood more than ever these days.

And I just heard about this upcoming event -- a huge flea market -- in the works for April.

In Brooklyn Heights, every Tuesday and Saturday are these lovely farmers' markets with fresh vegetables from upstate New York, and yes, Pennsylvania. I always feel very Cider House Rules when I walk through the tents, picking up apples.

I've also discovered the Brooklyn Public Library on my end of town. The selection is amazing and very homey. I wish I could live here as a real person, not a student.

Maybe I'll stay a little bit before Christmas after classes have ended and see some of the things I've been longing to visit like the Brooklyn Museum, the Guggenheim, Central Park's northern end, the Museum of Natural History...There really is -so- much to do here.

LOL, you got three comments all within the same minute. That's gotta be a record or something for the Bloginators... HA.

Yes, Mom, Christmas will be lovely in Mount Pleasant, and I do plan to spend it there, but I'm thinking of staying a few days after class ends to enjoy the city and then come home.

That's the plan, though, and those can definitely change.

And Karissa, it'd be great to have a Guggenheim pal!
