Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass
Down under the Manhattan-Brooklyn overpass, is a section of Brooklyn referred to as "DUMBO." Once a dilapidated and industrial hideaway for artist lofts, shady car repair stores and film scouts seeking "gritty" city scapes, DUMBO has long since gentrified into a fashionable neighborhood for the young and upwardly yuppie, babies included.
We visited DUMBO again recently to have brunch at BUBBY's. There the monkey quenched his thirst with his very own plastic cup of water. Buttermilk biscuits, fruit, and french toast soon followed.
After brunch, we walked around the recently created park and shorefront walking path, and I considered how much the area had changed in such a short period of time. The last time the monkey was here, he looked like this:
He won't let me put bunny ear hats on him anymore. Time goes by so fast.
