This place

So. Here’s the thing. I’m in LOVE with this town.

And I know earlier in the day I said that I wanted to Live in Brooklyn Heights. That was BEFORE I went to the upper west side. THIS is where I want to live.

One of the readers of BabyMac, let’s call her Trish, cause that’s her name, invited us to her house for an evening drink. She lives here. BAM!

This was the view from her apartment. BAM!

We had some champagne. And looked out her windows. This. Was their view.

We drank some french. Ate some fancy pizza. And some fancy tarts with very large raspberries on top.

Rob, so THIS is where we should live.

Look at those roomy sidewalks!

And this? This is where JOHN LENNON was shot. His fancy apartment building.

We ventured downtown for some tapas and wine.

And the best thing I’ve read in some time. See that man there? He is a GRANDPA. At 51! The youngest and hottest Grandpa I’ve ever met. 51! Congrats to his daughter and their 7 day old baby who was ADORABLE.

We watched the 100 relay live and I couldn’t have been happier that France won. FRANCE! Those American’s can be so preppy and annoying…

    I lived on 71st and Columbus but my apartment definitely did not look like that!
    I am glad that you and Mrs. Woog are getting the show pony tour of NYC!

    Oh god. What was I thinking? I missed a step before I had children!

    • Kate

      Me too Twitchy, and reading the New York posts is the first time I’ve ever had such regret about it!

    • BabyMac

      That’s what I keep thinking! I SO wish that Rob and I had come here when we were young and carefree and SOMEHOW managed to live here.
