We’re really excited to announce the details of the next For the Love of Brooklyn meet-up, price and this time we’re heading south to the shore! Our May meet-up will be in Brighton Beach, website thanks to the great suggestions of several members. The plan is to meet up at L&B Spumoni Gardens, the famous 71-year-old pizza joint in South Brooklyn.
After a slice (or three or four!), we’ll head south past the Coney Island railyards to the bungalow community in Brighton Beach. If bungalows and footpaths in Brooklyn sound crazy to you, check out Nathan Kensinger’s blog for a fantastic photo essay of what to expect. Still unconvinced? Check out this map and try to pull up a street view of all the little courts and lanes! See?!
We’ll likely end up strolling along the boardwalk at the golden hour since Saturday’s weather forecast looks gorgeous. Can’t wait! Hope everyone has a fabulous week. Check out the details below and some total eye candy from Lyouba Assadourova!
Date: Saturday, May 1st
Location: L&B Spumoni Gardens (map)
Via MTA: D to 25th Avenue, N to 86th Street – Gravesend
Alternate: If you can’t join us for pizza by 3:30 or so, but would like to catch up afterward near the beach, send us a note and get in touch!
