Bay Ridge, Brooklyn

I recently moved from Coney Island to my new digs in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. What a fucking awesome place! This has got to be the coolest neighborhood ever. I have three Dunkin Donuts in a two-block radius, two of which are open 24/7. There is a huge gym right across the street, which is also open 24/7. There are so many restaurants and bars nearby. I was walking around with some friends the other night at 3:30 on a Thursday morning, and the streets were packed with people stumbling to and from the bars. It seemed more alive than at 3:30 in the afternoon. My apartment is on the sixth floor, and from each bedroom, I have incredible views of the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty in the distance. My brother and I went out his bedroom window onto the fire escape, and went up to the roof. The views up there are even more breathtaking. The Verrazano Bridge looks so big up here, it seems as though you could reach out and touch it. On a clear day, you can almost see the Citi building in Queens.
