"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Gowanus Yacht Club: No Beer Here!

The Gowanus Yacht Club, Carroll Gardens' outdoor beer garden, closed for the season just a few weeks ago to the relief of local residents. But the courtyard at the corner of President and Smith Street did not stay unused for long. Just yesterday, it underwent its yearly transformation from drinking spot to Christmas Tree yard .

It looks so much prettier with the trees than with all the hipsters who frequent the location during the warmer months.

Talking about tree shopping, what is the best deal around?

I know the sell point in front of CVS on Court Street, has currently fairly tall trees for $90. More trees with different sizes will be delivered in the coming days...

Any tip? Thank you in advance

Take care!

I really have no idea. I just know that it is way too much here in the neighborhood.
The last few years we have gotten a tree at Lowe's or home depot, though I hate to admit it.
Yesterday, I looked at Lowe's and a 7 or 8 foot tree was about 50 dollars. That's more my speed.
But if you want to buy local, definitely, the Canadian woman who sells them in front of the Court Street CVS has some really beautiful ones. And they are fresher, I am sure
