I've been living in new york for over 15 years and during most of that time, I've lived in Brooklyn (Park Slope both north and south, Ft. Greene, Gowanus). I've really made the area home and feel fortunate to have a unique, modernized space in a brownstone by the park. I live with my cat, who I recently toilet-trained, and I have a deck with a large table, portable grill and growing herbs, where we both hang out often. I'm a lawyer and am currently studying digital media at NYU.
**UPDATE:** I'm moving to SF for 2015 for a yearlong fellowship (Code for America). Looking for a place in the Bay Area that my cat and I can temporarily call home. January 1 start.
