On Sunday, I asked Lena if she'd be interested in going to Brooklyn.
We set off after lunch and walked over the Brooklyn Bridge. We stopped for ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory (good) and then walked to Brooklyn Heights, which reminded me a little bit of some parts of Copenhagen. We continued on through Boerum Hill and Park Slope to Prospect Park, where we sat and watched Hasidic families pushing baby strollers. I really liked Brooklyn. It felt less densely packed, less overwhelming than Manhattan- maybe a little more approachable. I sometimes find Manhattan a little intimidating. Brooklyn is just more relaxed. It was a nice side adventure and a perfect way to spend a warm Sunday afternoon.
