I love living in Brooklyn. When first moving here I'll admit I was a bit skeptical. Last year I lived in Chelsea in Manhattan and it was amazing because it was the first time I'd ever been in NYC. I loved how close I was to everything and the exciting bustle around me. So when I moved to a much quieter and spread out Brooklyn, I felt seriously lacking in connection with the city. It wasn't a 10 minute walk to Times Square or I wasn't able to see the the city sky line out my window. I found the commute to Manhattan from Brooklyn tedious and tiring...
Now having been here three and a half months my thoughts have completely changed. I don't think I could live right in the middle of the city like that again. I love my Brooklyn neighborhood so much. It feels like home in the best way possible. For a few years there I didn't feel like I had a home because everything was so semi-permanent. I went from my hometown, to college, to Florence, to NYC, and back to college again in a span of four years. I never felt like I could settle down and find comfort in where I was living. Here I absolutely do. I love my little apartment in Bed-Stuy and my neighborhood favorites I already have. I just love this city because it is actually such a stark contrast from Manhattan. It is very community oriented here which is just what I was looking for. I feel at such peace in Brooklyn with all of the areas to explore and its down-to-earth nature. You don't have to pretend to be someone you're not in Brooklyn. In Manhattan, sometimes you do. It's a very cut throat city and keeping up can be exhausting (but also exhilarating). I'm so glad I get to experience the best of both worlds where I am. Bustling week in the city, relaxing weekend at home ♥
With much love,
