Brooklyn — Delightful, Hip, but without the Dodgers

Last weekend Aaron and I went to New York for a few days, before he went back out West.  The venue was Brooklyn, to visit with Jeremy and friends, to revel in good food and wine, and to explore the formerly-mysterious (to me) Borough of Brooklyn.

I rented a sweet, centrally-located apartment with amazingly good Feng Shui and spent a good bit of time walking around the various neighborhoods, getting a feel for each.  I won’t provide the usual litany of what I ate and drank where (you may need a break from all that), but I will say that Paulie Gee’s in Greenpoint is one of the best pizza places in the country, and that Osteria Il Paiolo in Williamsburg does a very fine Spaghetti Puttanesca for lunch.

You can get some of the flavor of my trip in this photo album, with previews below.
