I am an urban planner and I've lived in Fort Greene for eight years, and in New York for ten. I can't think of a better place to be. I've seen so many parts of this City, and in every borough I constantly realize it takes more than a lifetime to really know this place. It amazes me, and keeps me on my toes, and connected to a pulse I love seeing in other places when I travel - plain and simple, it's called being friendly and part of your community.
I work in affordable housing, and have been lucky to have had a range of urbanist related gigs over the years. From real estate development, to creating a national youth program that engages youth in the planning process, to parks development, to historic preservation and cultural awareness studies. If I have time, and you're up for it, I've been known to share the liquor cabinet with guests at check in, and then give a tour of some part of Brooklyn. The last one was a rooftop party.
The apartment is a great place; warm when it needs to be, cool when it should be, and always quiet unless you want to make noise. It comes with everything you need. Except food and good friends, which are up to you to supply.
