I found myself in Bed-Stuy today, just a few blocks east of my sister's new apartment. It was my first experience in real estate photography, and I couldn't figure out how to open the lock box (turns out it needed a lot more strength than one would think), so I called up the realtor. He talked me through it, but when I opened it? No keys! He told me that he would drive over from Williamsburg (so it would be some time), and that I should go hang out at Saraghina across the street to wait for him.
So I did just that, and had the most delicious spaghetti with tomato sauce so fabulous that I actually ATE the tomatoes (I'm not a big tomato fan)!! The place was so aesthetically pleasing that I ran around taking pictures of everything. The key that the realtor brought ended up being the wrong key, so I'll be back again tomorrow for the actual real estate, but I'm glad I got pictures of something pretty today. I'm also glad that I found a great restaurant in my sister's neighborhood, and I look forward to bringing her there with me next time. :)
