When it cools down a bit, I’m coming here.
Di Fara, one of the best!
Me and my friend Cory in Brooklyn :)
Dang, being here again brought back a lot of memories. So different. I literally haven't been here since they renovated the place and started putting on concerts here.
I didn't make this connection at first, but apparently with the recent completion of the Chrystie Street bike lane, there is now a continuous 9-mile bike lane route from Brooklyn all the way to the Bronx. I've biked on every single part of this stretch of bike lane and it is always fun to do because you pass by so much of NYC at a leisurely pace. Spectacular views of the East River as well as an option to venture into Randall's Island (and then into the Bronx).
By the way, if you don't already know, you can download the NYC Bike Map here.
East New York, Brooklyn. The 75th Precinct. At one time the deadliest precinct in the entire country. This documentary film directed by Tiller Russell looks at police corruption at the 75th Precinct in the 1980s. Might watch this tonight or sometime this week. Can't wait. Looks really good.
