Phew!

The Great Move (down the street) of 2007 is officially over. The place is just a Herzl poster (thanks, Dave!) and a dining room table away from perfection. Final thoughts, re: moving:

1) It costs twice as much to live in Park Slope as it does to live in Hyde Park. And it is well worth it. Sort of. At least for the groceries. But is double the rent worth it for better cheese? (Yes.)

2) The real estate process was... fun. There will be a detailed post on this at some point.

3) Seems I have a couple of books and magazines about French Jews. My apartment is in fact The Park Slope Center for French-Jewish Studies.
