For the first time ever, today I did the following:

1) Got out at the Smith-9th Street subway station, the most-elevated in the city.
2) Went to a Target.
3) Saw long stretches of yuppified Brooklyn that are not part of Park Slope or Williamsburg.

The results:

1) Not crazy about the Smith-9th Street subway station.
2) The Isaac Mizrahi clothes are eh. The rest doesn't look half bad.
3) Yuppified Brooklyn is a whole lot more laid-back and pleasant than yuppified Manhattan, but with just as frilly pastry shops. What could be better?

Isn't Brooklyn "yippiefied" rather than "yuppified"? A subtle distinction, I know.

I have a friend who lives off of 14th in Park Slope. Just recently visited. Great area. Really makes me want to move there. Also spent some time in Red Hook. Can't exactly call that yuppified. I was told it was surprising I didn't see a body floating around.

Mmm... Target. So useful and so inexpensive. Now that's an excellent concept from the Midwest!
