Total side note, but I moved to Chicago from Brooklyn, and that is amazing. What part of brooklyn do you live in?
We are in an area that is called Park Slope by realtors and somewhere between Park Slope and Sunset Park by everyone else. It is right on the corner of 20th and 5th.
Have you missed Brooklyn much since you left? I am pretty sure that I will, but we just can't realistically afford to live here comfortably and certainly not start a family.
