Star Wars and Waffles In Brooklyn

Posted in NYC by Andrew Spender on October 13, 2009

We spent the afternoon in Brooklyn last weekend on the hunt for Stars Wars for B. It was our first wander around the fancy Park Slope (funny story about it here) neighborhood and, in particular, Prospect Park. The saying goes that Park Slope is where all the real New Yorkers now live after up and leaving Manhattan. I’m not sure how true that really is, but it really is a lovely place. It reminded us a lot of Morningside in Edinburgh. And anyone who knows me, knows that Edinburgh is my favorite city in the whole-wide-world.

Yup, I was kinda taken with Brooklyn, and it wasn’t just the allure of the the Waffles & Dinges truck or the vast expanse to play in Prospect Park.

The Waffles & Dinges truck is the KING. If you’re in the city, follow them on Twitter to find out where they are each day and then brace yourself for a lifelong addition that may add a few inches to your waistline.
