You Know You’re A Brooklyn Baby When … August 23, 2013 / Kids, New York Life / 0 comment Your Saltwater sandals match your mama’s. The neighbourhood playground equipment teaches how to hail a cab. You wear a swimsuit and take sand toys to the sprinklers instead of the beach. The first piano you played was weighted down with cement blocks, and situated under a stone archway. You end playdates with a slice of wood-fired pizza. Your stroller is an SUV (hello Bugaboo and Uppababy!). Your playground has Manhattan as a backdrop. Your summer treat is ice cream – made with milk and eggs from local cows and chickens, churned the previous day. You think horses live on a carousel. All your friends live within walking distance. You have a jaunty hat collection. Your first milkshake was at Brooklyn Farmacy (right after a Jitterbugs show). You’ve been riding the subway like pro since you were four weeks old. (Choo choo!!) Everything you own is in miniature to fit in a small Brooklyn apartment (like your kitchen and piano). Your first dance class was at the Mark Morris Dance Center where you mingled with off-duty company members. Your stuffed toys are handmade by local artists. You have an item in your wardrobe identifying you as, indeed, a Brooklyn baby. Share this:TwitterStumble UponFacebookEmailPinterestMoreLinkedInPrintRedditTumblrPocket Related posts: Snow day!
