Brooklyn Discovered

New, 5 comments

BlackBook's Cayte Grieve writes about shunning bridge-and-tunnel Manhattan for the burgeoning Brooklyn nightlife scene, a journey that got off to a rocky start: "I went to The Bell House to see a band in a place called Gowanus, which I misread as 'cow-anus,' for which I was severely chastised by my clan, who wanted to show up on time for the gig. My Droid map searched for cow-anus, which was unsuccessful and time-consuming but fun. All I knew about Gowanus was that it's home to a famously toxic canal and a bumper-to-bumper expressway I was always hearing about on cab radios. I had the impression that it would smell bad, but it really didn't." [BlackBook]
