|Behind the contant stream of empty mental chatter and compulsive analysis there is a calm ocean of pure, unbiased, happy...um, stuff. You can get in touch with it at any time, and I hope you get in touch with it right....NOW! But, if not, I hope you all dwell there early and often :)
Here's a little news and a little content.
1- Solid free DUMBO parking secret
Why share my sweet ass DUMBO spot? Because you're on the list, and I want to "hook you up". OK so I was helping my love, Anne
, move her work in and out of the AIR
gallery in DUMBO for her solo show. AND, after a half hour of accumulated driving around, I found the sweet free parking area, if you don't mind a 5-10 minute walk. I've done it a few times now. Basically when you're around that orange gallery space where AIR is (111 front street) , you make any turn towards the water, and make a right on plymouth. As you drive down plymouth, look left. There are a few little side streets on the left that jut towards the water. I've had no trouble finding a spot there, and you don't have to pay out the wazzoo or compete for tight spaces on the main drag. Enjoy!
