Through rain and shine I saw beautiful people (and the SMILES) on the Parkway living it up. And I’m sitting here in my apartment writing this and getting distracted with hit after hit blasting in the street, Bob to Buju to Biggie… I love Brooklyn.

It’s not just the world-renowned restaurants but NYC is a melting pot, home to so many cultures and ethnic groups that have made the United States their home and almost all of these groups have their own food scenes in their enclaves of the city. To celebrate NYC and how growing up in this back drop has informed my taste palate, thoughts on culture and ultimately lead to ’N A Perfect World… I’ll be exploring my home town through neighborhood food crawls. The first: Flushing, Queens!

Get there! A 10 year old girl of Indian descent, who I recently interviewed, gushed about how much she loved living in Flushing and called it a “porridge pot.” I’m going to go with that, Flushing is a delicious porridge pot …
Today was an absolutely gorgeous day in Brooklyn. I hope all of my ‘N A Perfect World readers are having a day filled with happiness. xxNn
