The view from the Brooklyn Promenade of Lower Manhattan is pretty neat-o.
Saturday it rained all day, and we were cooped up inside with the television, online scrabble and Cheetos (can you spell 'headache?').
On Sunday, Mark and I went into the city to celebrate his Mom's birthday. We lunched and walked around a little in Hell's Kitchen, which has undergone some major changes. There were new restaurants everywhere, making it look a lot like Chelsea, a colorful neighborhood 20 blocks south.
Later in the afternoon, we drove across the East River back to Brooklyn. Just about everyone was walking along the Promenade, enjoying the view and the amazing weather.
