NYC: The Lower East Side

I moved to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn 9 years ago. Hated it for the first few years. It seemed and still seems so suburban to me (we have big houses with lawns) but I grew to love Bay Ridge. I bike most the year by my favorite water view along the Hudson, the food is fantastic, it’s a safe, self-contained neighborhood, and very diverse. Even though it has all this going for it – it still never quite feels like home. To this day anyone who asks gets the full story, “I live in Brooklyn but I was born and raised in Manhattan on the LES.”

I’m always a little homesick and craving for knishes.
