Russell lives in Brooklyn these days, and we’ve enjoyed visiting him there. It’s just a cool place — and now its coolness is being recognized.
A recent USA Today article describes Brooklyn as the “new bohemia.” I’m glad to see this borough get some positive PR, because I think it’s a neat, artsy place, with lots of ethnicity and age about it. It’s also a big place, geographically, with great parks and great restaurants, too. We’ve been to a wonderful bistro called Traif that had fabulous, small plate offerings, as well as a fine dark, quiet bar called Dram. And, in prior visits, I’ve gone to Peter Luger for great steaks.
So, I’m not surprised that Brooklyn is now being recognized as a cool, bohemian place. In the Webner family, we’ve known that for some time now. After all, Russell lives there, doesn’t he?
