Hi, I am from San Francisco, near Buena Vista Park, & I'm going to Brooklyn to visit my daughter who lives on St. Marks Pl. and works in the Village - she's a film editor. I love to walk and walk, and I bring several books. Last Spring after brunch at Mile End we walked to Red Hook, went to the Key Lime place, Fort Defiance, dinner w/ friends at Frankie's Spuntino, a pop-up show at the Jalopy theater-and that's when I said the next visit I would stay in Brooklyn! I will love the hustle and bustle near your lovely apt., and as I am on my own, my stay will be low key. I am looking forward to seeing it & meeting you.
