rent our apartment, love our cat

As you may have read on my other blog, we are going to be in India from July 7th through August 5th. We would like to sublet our Prospect/Lefferts Gardens apartment to a cat lover with a green thumb while we're gone. It's a nice size one bedroom, perfect for one or two people. It's got all new appliances in an elevator building overlooking Prospect Park, steps away from the train and convenient to many of the fun activites I've described on this blog.

Picture yourself living right over the Q train (15 minutes to Chinatown!) looking out the window at Prospect Park (right across the street), shuffling down the block to the Prospect Park Zoo or the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, riding your bike or riding two stops on the train toward Manhattan to hit the Prospect Park Farmers Market, the Brooklyn Public Library or the Brooklyn Museum.

What can you eat in our neighborhood? What's not to eat? Have yummy Mexican at Enduro; have Chinese or Sushi delivered to your door. Gobble Jamaican beef patties or roti around the corner. Buy a fabulous curry at the drum circle (also right across the street) on Sunday afternoon.

Check out the Celebrate Brooklyn free concerts across the park. This year's line up has yet to be posted, but last year's performances included:
TV on the Radio
The Hidden Cameras
Ray Lamontange
Maceo Parker
Yo La Tengo
Queen Latifah
and even a surprise visit by Prince!

Specific dates: July 7th through August 5th.
Asking $950; less if you're willing to cat sit. Looking for a non-smoker.

Did I mention that it's a short train ride to Coney Island, a long bike ride to Jacob Riis/Fort Tilden and a hop, skip and a jump to Di Fara's Pizza - the pie that stole my heart away from Angelo D'Angelo?

And our cat, Eliza, is wonderful! If it's a deal-breaker, let us know!

why do you do this to me?
It starts off with a simple comment like "people visit my blog and no one leaves a message" which leads to me thinking "oh l better write something to make her happy" After all look at all the time you spent on these things, I didn't have time to read it all. Not only long entries, but pictures to boot!
Now of course I regret it.
In order to leave a comment, you have to be logged in, to be logged in you have to be a registered user, to be a registered user you have to have a google account, to have a google account you have to fill out a little form, blah blah blah all this because I wanted to make a funny comment that, in the end, might be better to share with you in person. Ask me the next time you see me...

I just want to thank all the people (Vassili) who have sacrificed so much to read my blog and leave comments. Now that some people are registered, they should start a blog about, say Greece; full of pictures of pretty Greek places and yummy greek food. Luckily, I'm already registered, so I will leave comments on your Greek blog.
