I’m honored to be included as one of the Top New Brooklyn Blogs of 2006 by Gowanus Lounge. There are many others who deserve to get recognition. I wholeheartedly agree with Gary of Brooklyn Runs blog that GL is too humble to include itself on such a list. Of the hundreds of Brooklyn based blogs, GL is one of my favorite blogs and on my daily read and a must read for those who are interested about life and real estate in Brooklyn. There are so many events and real estate developments in Brooklyn, I don’t know how GL does it. Keeping up with the small area of Dumbo is challenging enough. GL brought attention to real estate development in Dumbo and got DumboNYC on Curbed (with 17 mentions on Curbed in 2006).

Happy 2007! I hope you had a wonderful new year’s celebration over the weekend. We were not in Dumbo for the holidays, but happy to be back in Dumbo. We’re also back at work today, but our minds are still on champagne, food, friends, and family, so excuse my incoherence for the next day or so.

In the meantime, read the Dumbo top 10 recap of 2006, or submit a story or event about Dumbo.

What are your new year’s resolutions? You can get buff with some boxing lessons at Gleason’s Gym, get in shape at The Fitness Guru, or harmonize your body and mind at Bridge Pilates or Noodle Yoga. Mine are to cut down on sweets, so I’ll be in shape for my snowboarding trip this winter and summer beach visits. That’s a tough resolution especially since Almondine Bakery, Jacques Torres Chocolates, and Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory are just around the corner. Cheers!
