A Couple Living in Brooklyn
My cousin Becky and her then-fiancé both moved to Brooklyn to live for the 1st time. I followed them for the 1st two weeks. 35mm film © 2013 Marisa Sarto
2 weeks in Brooklyn
When they were apart..
their phones kept them together.
When Becky hunted apartments, I followed.
When Alek put their bed together, Becky watched.
When it was nice out..
we hung out on the balcony.
When it was dark out..
we took the hallway's electricity.
We took the subway everywhere.
We walked everywhere.
We did more walking and climbing.
We did some smiling and laughing.
We endured the rants of this distrubed man..
feeling like true New Yorkers.
We rode the regular bus.
We rode escalators.
They took me to my 1st Shake Shack.
And when Becky worked, Alek took me to Kat'z.
They took me to my 1st New York bagel.
And when Becky worked, Alek took me to White Castle.
To life without a car.
To life with Google maps.
To life in New York
