We’ve been here for 4 days – we’ve found a largish market, a corner bodega (on every corner), TJ’s (a subway ride away), a 99 cent store, a couple USPS offices, a coffee shop (5 doors away-we already feel like it’s “our local”), a brisket/corned beef restaurant (loose term), a Japanese/Mexican restaurant (loose term) andContinue reading “Settling In?”
