Brooklyn Hipster Parents: Myth Dispelled
Brooklyn is a big place.
In my part of the borough, Brooklyn Heights, Nate is like the lone tattooed dad, and probably the only one that ever lived on Avenue C with four roommates and a couch that smelled like the homeless guy they swiped it out from under. This is not exactly where the struggling writers and bloggers and comedians and table-waiters come to spawn. It's more like where the Wall Street guys settle when they want a short commute and a few trees for the kids.
Which is why it still totally cracks me up that we live here.
If you want to know more about where I live, or the rest of NYC for that matter, Mommy Poppins, which is the most awesomely unpretentious blog about New York for families, just put together a really great New York City neighborhood guide written by all different bloggers.
