With apologies to Kipling: the great, grey-green, greasy Gowanus Canal, all set about with Aspen trees...never looked so good.
A great new, timely blog in town, Brokelyn, turned me onto the opening day at the Brooklyn Yard. The lines for food were well in excess of half an hour long, so I skipped. But it sure was purdy. Only drawback - they allow dogs in. I just feel weird sitting on dog-visited grass.
Sit! Nice doggy! Now go home.
