We live in Brooklyn, NY only a handful of subway stops from Manhattan. We live on the top floor of a small building in a duplex two-bedroom apartment nicknamed, “Castlevania”. We have a narrow living room and kitchen with a tall eighteen foot ceiling and a really big window. We get a lot of natural light and have lots of different green plants in the house. Our decor is victorian and gothic. We have tried to make our home representative of who we are while also being a place we can retreat to and feel safe after a long day. You can climb a ladder up to the roof and see the Manhattan skyline which is great for watching the fireworks on the fourth of July.
Our neighborhood is diverse and each block has its own vibe and character. There are a few different playgrounds within walking distance where we often take Zeke to play. There are also so many activities like art class, soccer camp, botanical gardens, museums, the zoo and the aquarium. One of our favorite places to eat is a popular vegan restaurant that just happens to be on our block (it’s closeness may or may not affect why it’s one of our favorites). There is a beautiful church nearby that plays its bells on Sundays. Our go-to bodega has great sandwiches and we enjoy saying hi and catching up with everyone that works there.
Joel loves the outdoors, including hiking, rock climbing and the beach. Janna loves art, makeup, culture, fashion, gardening, and the beach. Zeke loves his cars, his nighttime blanky, singing along to his favorite songs, and keeping Mommy and Daddy on their toes.
