Halloween Photos!

We had such luck this year for Halloween. The weather was absolutely gorgeous! As usual the holiday trick or treating started early and the streets were bumping by 5pm. So many adorable/scary/inventive costumes and decorations. We wanted to share some photos from the evening with you all. See our gallery below!

Good News for Kensington Stables.

A couple of years ago we learned that Kensington Stables had declared bankruptcy and the building was on the market. Residents of this area near Prospect Park were upset to hear this news. Not only were these stables a historic part of the community but they added charm to this section of Brooklyn. It’s so […]

Morbid Anatomy Pop-Up!

Spring Family Scavenger Hunt in the Cemetery.

Folks visiting from out-of-town are always surprised to hear that Greenwood Cemetery puts on events. From film screenings to evening parties to family activities, this space is more than a cemetery.

Many issues factor into choosing your perfect Brooklyn neighborhood.

RealTours: A Day in Windsor Terrace

Saying Goodbye to the Beloved Kensington Stables.

Over the years if you’ve headed towards Prospect Park from the Kensington or Windsor Terrace areas you may have seen folks riding on horseback towards or from the park.  At the very least you’ve noticed a horse trail with evidence that horses were recently present in the form of manure.  These beautiful animals belong to […]

We saw this class, “Improv for Professionals”, and thought it was a great idea and want to share with anyone who may need to work on their communication skills.  Honestly, that’s most of us.  We are so accustomed to being glued to our […]
