as a fellow Brooklynite, I also echo that sentiment!
As yet another Brooklyner (deep south Brooklyn, not the cool parts of Brooklyn you are probably from), I can admit that the commute sucks. To everywhere. Everything else is great though.
Actually I am in Bay Ridge, I would certainly consider that the coolest part of Brooklyn! Its actually not that bad a commute into the city either (I'm close to the N train - 15 minutes to Union Square most of the time). Are you from out in Sheepshead/Bensonhurst/Coney?
Quite a few of us on here, I know theres another guy too I PMd a few times back and forth. One day we'll all have to get together when this whole process is over!
Hah, pegged me right. I am right off 20th Ave on the D line -- my commute to midtown Manhattan clocks at 60 minutes flat, door to door. Unless the MTA decide to run D trains express from Coney Island to 36th St (which they do more than occasionally during rush hours), in which case it takes me like a billion years to get anywhere.
I would definitely be down to meet you all. Keep me in mind if you would like to organize something post-interviews.
