it is funny… someone recently told us at a dinner party that they thought it must be impossible to live in new york and be healthy. i thought it was funny because i actually think we live an incredibly healthy lifestyle here… we are constantly active and probably have more access to organic and farm raised foods then i could imagine having elsewhere… ok, maybe california has us beat, but still. the reality is one of the reasons we moved to dumbo to years ago was to offer the kids a healthier lifestyle as well. living here is kind of like having a playground in our backyard. a couple days ago nate took the kids out just to bike and run around and i’m so glad he took his camera because he captured some of the most beautiful moments in “our backyard.”
heading to jane’s carousel along the waterfront.
pier 2 is a part of brooklyn bridge park. it is a recreation pier–it features five acres of active recreation courts for basketball, handball, shuffleboard and bocce, as well as a full size roller skating rink, swings, picnic tables, restrooms and fitness equipment.
we are moving apartments next week, but thankfully we are just changing floors in our building! our hope is to stay in our hood as long as we live in the city. not sure what the future holds, but we feel pretty thankful with life just as it is.
