Grid-Walking Part 2

Today we walked Quadrant 2 of our grid-walking plan: Union St/6th Ave to 7th St/Prospect Park West.  Fall is definitely settling in, and I couldn’t be happier with the cooler temperatures.  I wouldn’t call it cold by any means, but it’s cool enough for a holey sweater and a very thin puffy in a fall plaid.  I’m not even quite done with the plaid yet, but this Uniqlo puffy is a recent addition to my fall arsenal.

Oh, and I dyed my hair last weekend.  There was a sale on hair dye at CVS and I had a coupon for an extra $2 off.  $4.50 later, I have black hair.  Something new for cheap.

puffer: uniqlo (bought during a $10 off special)- sweater: anthro, evening chill pullover (old)- belt: h&m – coated twill pants: urban outfitters (I bought mine on sale for $30 in-store, online they’re full price still)- shoes: vans (super old) – bag: freitag

the move

I’ve been here living in Brooklyn for 15 days now.  We still have unpacked boxes, and no couch.  $3500 in Amazon and Ikea purchases later, we have a semi home.  These pictures may not be horribly exciting, but this is how it all began.

Crate truck rolling down the street, circling 3 times before it’s parked on a neighboring street.  Guy then drives the pitchfork carrying our crate to us.  We have 30 min to unload. Good thing we had the help of these guys, also in town for Blogword Expo and NYC Wordcamp.

These boxes and a bed are all we brought.  Thus the mucho $$ spent furnishing our place.  B and I show our appreciation by serving beer on the roof of our new building.  

High tech stuff going on in our building.  This is how the bad guys get caught.

Everyone has pesky neighbors right? Our neighbors are all religious.  On one block, we’ve got one arabic Jehovah’s Witness kingdom hall, one “Templo Unido” and one Catholic (I think) church.  At least our building is secure.

The rest of the hood.  We can all rest easy, there is Blue Bottle Coffee around.
