We have lived here since Larry was in Brooklyn Law School. We raised our family here, and our grandchildren attend the same schools as our children. Kathy taught at Packer Collegiate Institute just up the street.
In the 70s we were part of a a contingent of young people who loved old houses, the beautiful neighborhood, and who set about refurbishing these houses by hand.
This is a peaceful, tree lined neighborhood where you'll see lots of children and dogs. It's very family oriented. There are all sorts of interesting shops, from supermarkets to ethnic and elegant. A plethora of restaurants. The waterfront with the most spectacular views of Manhattan imaginable.
