The irony that I'm finally sitting down to write this post mere days after moving to Brooklyn is not lost on me. Not that I’m a Manhattan snob, because I’ve been aware of Brooklyn’s awesomeness for a few years now, but it’s just one of those posts that keeps getting pushed back.So, in honor of my new Bushwick address, here are five Brooklyn neighborhoods worth a wander.
