The realities of living in Brooklyn

Updated: Oct 7, 2021

I lived in Brooklyn for almost three years and just moved out. I loved parts of it — the space, the cool restaurants and bars, Brooklyn Museum, the comedy scene, and Prospect Park.

I'll miss living in my cute apartment with its faux brick and backyard, but I won't miss schlepping my laundry, some of the pretentiousness, or seeing rats on the sidewalks, in my yard, and once — under my sink! (The area I lived in apparently has an abnormally large rat problem).

Sometimes felt like I didn't fit in, and I laughed at myself when I compared myself with hipper or more responsible neighbors. So, like always, I made a doodle about it - and a video!
