I write about Brooklyn every week for NYC’s Neighborbee blog. The following post originally appeared on Neighborbee on October 20, 2008.
Hello Noo Yawkers, it’s Julie here, Neighborbee’s new Brooklyn blogger. I’m back in the city after year-long travels, and now I have one more good reason to go out and explore my new borough.
Unsure of what haunt to cover for my first post, I called my friend Hils, a long-time Brooklynite. She suggested Camp, a Smith Street bar that had always intrigued her. “Julie,” she said, “they have S’mores.” That was all it took for me to agree to a 3-train trip across Brooklyn. (Sidebar: why is it easier for me to go into Manhattan than to go to Smith Street? I really must look into buses.)
