Although I will always love my fair city, Washington DC, I must confess that I have a second love, Fort Greene Brooklyn.
I lived in Fort Greene for some years and though I decided that it would not be my permanent home this place will always have a special place in my heart. Fort Greene made me feel a sense of community when I needed respite from the concrete jungle that was Manhattan…it was a calming and soothing place for my soul.
It had been some time since I’d been back, but on a recent trip I was overwhelmed with my affection for Fort Greene. The weather was lovely, the jazz station, 88.3 (I recommend that you live stream this now) provided a romantic soundtrack as I drove through the colorful streets and the mood was perfectly set for my weekend love affair. I soaked up the delicious food, the beautiful parks, and enjoyed the company of amazing people – Zovig, you’re truly a gem…to The Feeze, I look forward to the next time!
Here’s to special people, lovely weather, beautiful music, and an affair with a truly lovely city…enjoy.
