A Visit to the NY Transit Museum.

We wouldn’t quite call the New York Transit Museum a hidden gem, even though it is located underground and there are usually very few crowds when we’ve visited in the past, but it certainly is a neighborhood treasure.  One of the most unique museums you’ll find in New York, the space presents the history of […]

Smith Street’s Video Free Brooklyn Relocates.

Walking down Smith Street the other day we were seeing so many shuttered doors and papered windows. Shops come and go on this bustling street spanning from Cobble Hill to Carroll Gardens.  One particular darkened space felt a bit like a punch in the gut, though.  Our last neighborhood video store, Video Free Brooklyn, has moved.  So […]
