Thank you all so much for the wonderful, thoughtful comments.
leethebard, I’ve been in love with Defonte’s since my first bite of that hot roast beef sandwich so many years ago. Hope you’re feeling well.
TnTinCT, you two were missed. How was your trip overseas? I’ll start writing down some ideas for Queens…
BuddyRoadhouse, hehe, I’m still thinking about that pie!
ChTownDiner, looking forward to seeing you and Patti! I think any mention of Mr. Rogo wins you a free all-expense paid trip to beautiful, exotic Pittston, PA!
pnwchef, thanks so much. Red Hook Lobster Pound was a potential stop on the list but we would have needed a reservation and I wanted to keep things a bit more loose than that. We did drive by it on the way to Steve’s and the seating was pretty tight so it worked out for the best. I do want to get back there and check it out. I have a couple of local friends who have been on tours with me and LOVE lobster rolls so maybe some reconnaissance is in order!
wanderingjew, so glad you and Sandra could make it and you had fun. I think I’d like to try that sundae of Sandra’s from the Farmacy next time. If I knew you were going to Ess-A-Bagel, I would have said for you to eat it outside around the corner in Greenacre Park on 51st Street. The waterfall really makes it an oasis in the middle of the city. Fifteen years ago when I looked in the mirror I could just see the gray hairs coming in on my beard. Now I look at the face peering back at me and wonder, “Who is that old man?”
kozel & stitches, so sorry you couldn’t make it. I’d love to ride a trolley car in Brooklyn and it’d be great for Red Hook to be more connected with the rest of Brooklyn and the subway system.
Ralph Melton, was it anything like the face she made when she tried the durian fruit ice cream? [:D]
Wintahaba, thanks so much. Still working on my style but making some progress. So many writers out there whose style I really admire!
ScreamingChicken, I’m so glad that it came off well. I sort of planned it on the fly and had concerns about seating, getting from one place to another, etc. I personally walked just over 10 miles that day but the sights I was able to take in were totally worth it. There is just so much you can see by subway. The brownstones in Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens on the walk from Red Hook to the New York Transit Museum were amazing. Would love to be able to take a tour inside some of them. Thanks for the grammar catch! I was a bit frustrated over how long I was taking to write this that I just decided to post it and then go in later to find any errors I may have let slip through. I went in this morning and proofed it was well as added the 411 information for the stops.
bigbear, I didn’t think to ask. I do love al fresco dining whenever the opportunity arises.
karilyn, you are too kind. Thank you so much. Looking forward to the next tour!
