"We giggle together" in Carroll Gardens

A sweet story of love via the online personals...The author of the text in this piece lives in Carroll Gardens. I thank her for visiting me at the Dumbo Arts Festival and sharing this story.

Williamsburg by way of Greenpoint and Brooklyn Heights

When this couple first met, one half lived in Brooklyn Heights and the other in Greenpoint. The G train was an early insignia of their love; they dreaded that train yet traveled on it regularly to get to know each other. They moved in after only 5 months, perhaps partly because of the commute. Now, years later, they are still very happy together.

Starrett City

When I was a kid, my parents would drive to the Bronx to visit my grandparents, and also to Long Island to go shopping. We always passed by Starrett City, a small inlet above Canarsie. It felt like the end of the world, and I wondered how I was going to find a love story from this area. Lucky for me, I met a man with a Starrett City story at the Dumbo Arts Festival!
