Simply Remembering my Favorite Things.
Few things make me happier in New York City than splashing around in the free, open lanes at the Red Hook Pool and gorging at the food trucks around the nearby soccer fields. I've pedaled down this way from Williamsburg two or three times weekly but they only have the trucks on the weekends. And, with today's plunge, that's it for the season - the pool closes on Labor Day.
I'm usually pretty elated and twitchy coming out of the water. Given that, this was as close to a focus as I could get.
