Brooklyn Love

Former VIBE Editor-in-Chief Danyel Smith guest blogs at Anil's spot for her book More Like Wrestling

Brooklyn (pretty much) Rules

Ft. Greene is the bomb. And the surrounding areas—North Flatbush, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill—are interesting and seductive as well. I walk all over these streets. It all seems like one big neighborhood. There is no rhyme or reason to my travels—I just go.

I pretty much do the same thing when I travel Planet Brooklyn alone. I'll pick a random subway stop, or favorite locale and will visit and just walk from there wherever my feet take me. It's not unusual for me to walk hours on end, turning this way and that way, discovering new shops, diners, and hidden treasures like greenspots and such.

I will definitely have to get to Brooklyn in the daytime the next time I am there. I will just have to beware of the "beatdown." Posted by: James on April 22, 2004 09:31 AM
Don't be scuuuurred, my "skinny ass" will protect you Papi! ;-) Brooklyn (just like the other outer boros) is a great place to visit. You have to visit the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Let me know when you're coming around again. I'll take off time if necessary to show you around. Even tho you're from the Weak Coast. Posted by: ronn on April 22, 2004 08:19 PM
