Moving Day

After 12 years of living in Manhattan, Mrs. SF, (no longer Soxbaby and now) Soxkid Isaac, and I are leaving the borough. We’re following YF and his clan out to the county of Kings for a new home in Brooklyn.  The bad news?  No more art galleries out the back door.  The good news?   We’ve increased our distance from Yankee Stadium. And according to Google Earth, we now live closer to Beantown.  Isaac’s certain to latch on to the Sox now, right?

  • Cool! Congratulations on your new home!
    I’m in Brooklyn myself and I love where I live. Being close to Manhattan (for both work and play) and close to the subway is great, but the neighborhood is wonderfully quiet and near the park. I like the toned-down, residential feel of Brooklyn…the more neighborhoody bits I’ve lived in anyway.
    When are you moving? This weekend? And what’s this about Isaac possibly not latching on to the Sox? C’mon, the little guy has to know where his loyalties lie *strokes knuckles*.

  • Dumbo – amidst the bridges, trains, and BQE.
    We’re trading noise for square footage, and moving today.

  • Welcome to the boro, SF! There’s great baseball history here, and it’s a history mostly defined by losing, so, as a Sox Fan, you should fit right in! Fuhgetaboutit!

  • Not quite a “new” neighborhood – I’ve worked in DUMBO since 2000, so have been an adjunct Brooklynite for some time.

  • And thanks for all the well-wishes, btw. Hey YF, any interest in helping schlep?

  • SF: On Daddy Duty today, alas. Tomorrow?

  • I was just kidding – you DON’T want to get involved in this mess!

  • Manhattan will miss you, SF. We used to have a baseball team, too! Though they were more used to winning than their Brooklyn counterparts…

  • My lease comes up in a few months, and I have a feeling the rent is going to go up insanely. So I’ll probably follow you soon, though I was raised in Brooklyn!

  • Welcome to Brooklyn, always nice to have another sox fan in the borough.

  • Red Sox aquire Brendan Donnelly for Phil Seibel today

  • Actually, with the new home base, SoxKid might now be headed for Cyclones/MetsKid status. I’d be willing to bet that the first jersey he asks for as a b-day present is a David Wright home uni. :)
    Hope the move went smoothly, dude!
