There is so much going on this upcoming week. Passover begins at sunset tonight and will last for seven days, Easter is Sunday and school break began today as well.  We’ve looked up fun things to do over Spring break and picked our top three events. The spring is coming and it’s time to dust […]

Choosing a Neighborhood That’s Right for You.

Many issues factor into choosing your perfect Brooklyn neighborhood. Prices, schools, safety and ambiance are just a few considerations to think over.  Often times people can’t have everything they want so they have to compare and compromise. Many have chosen to move somewhere quieter and further into Brooklyn for a place that’s larger and more […]

Ample Hills Coming to Park Slope.

We’ve been so looking forward to the opening of Nitehawk in the old Pavilion theater site at 15th Street in Park Slope, which is set to open this year, and now we have another opening to get psyched about. We just heard that Ample Hills signed a lease at 192 Prospect Park West right next to […]

Summer Camp Expo Tomorrow.

Over the last brutally cold month many of us have been thinking about summer.  Dreaming of visiting the beach and laying out in the sun.  Brooklyn families may be thinking about it for a different reason, however. Very soon it will be time to sign kids up for summer camp.  They fill up fast! Tomorrow […]

Seasonally Focused Camperdown Elm in South Slope.

We love trying new restaurants and, though it took us a little while to make it over to Camperdown Elm on 7th Avenue and 15th Street, we finally tried them out for dinner on Friday night and enjoyed every bite (and sip!).

Park Slope is a sprawling neighborhood and years ago people began calling the south end of the area, which could also have been considered Greenwood Heights, South Slope.  It a bit quieter than the north end and a bit more affordable.  It is just as gorgeous, though, with brownstones and tree-lined streets. Here is our […]

3 Outdoor Brooklyn Bars for Labor Day Drinks.

As the long weekend approaches and the summer comes to an end a lot of us are having the same thought.  “I need a drink!”. Well, there aren’t many weekends left to take advantage of sitting on a bar’s patio or garden area and having a few drinks while the sun goes down.  Here are […]

Summer Literacy Tutoring in Brooklyn.

Today is the last day of school for public schools in our five boroughs.  We blogged last week about fun summer kids activities and camps for anyone looking for ideas on how to spend the season. Keeping up with the academic strides your child has made is also very important and today we’d like to promote […]

Is Sunset Park Brooklyn’s Next Hot Neighborhood? by David Anger

Just a short trip southwest from the skyrocketing rents of Park Slope, past the cemetery and Greenwood Heights, lies one of the most authentic and welcoming neighborhoods that Brooklyn has to offer. I’m talking about Sunset Park, of course. This beautiful neighborhood still features affordable rents and has been recently rejuvenated by new accessibility and […]
