"Living in Brooklyn v. Manhattan": filmed just before social distancing started


Living in Brooklyn v. Manhattan” with Brett Conti

Brett filmed this in early March 2020, just before the social distancing orders hit hard.

He shows an apartment in Brooklyn, with seven people living in it (imagine the hygiene rules now) with a skareboard rink built onto the floor.  Tim Pool would be ecstatic.  (Pool assembled one from a kit for his home in New Jersey.)

He says the cost of rent can be three times less (that’s hard to believe.)

The shows some scenes from Bed-Sty, which were somewhat spared by Hurricane Sandy.

I remember Brooklyn Heights well, with its Barge Music.

The D Train goes right through it, in a sink without being covered.

I don't know if this is the right picture, but I attempted to select a night picture near Atlantic Ave. subway station near the Brooklyn Academy of Music, April 2018.
