Hello, Summer!

As temperatures soared into the 80's this weekend, it seemed as though all of New York hit the streets to enjoy the city in its prime. 

I've been looking forward to this weekend since moving back to Brooklyn in February. There's something about the spacious, rambling nature of Brooklyn that makes exploration an intrinsic element of summer. You're never quite finished seeing what's new in the neighborhood. Just a few items on my checklist: running through Prospect Park, reading on a blanket in Fort Greene Park, hitting up the coffee shops, trolling the Brooklyn flea markets. Not a bad start. 

The line for ice cream outside the flea market in Ft. Greene. Just what the doctor ordered.

And  delicious flea market pastries...I opted for a fudge cookie since the cupcakes were melting.

Who doesn't love a good flea market? Pictured above: tents, vintage Dr. Pepper bottles, kimonos, old records, furniture, a woman bending over to display her backside, introspective dude with white hair. Anatomy charts, encyclopedia maps,  hand-made jewelry.

Fort Greene Park on Saturday. Packed.

Last but not least, this awesome Monet print, which I bought framed for a whopping $25 at a flea market in Park Slope. Compliments my "Chelsea" walls quite nicely, don't you think?

Buying Prom Dresses Online
