You might be able to see this marvelous installation before it comes down this weekend. In the sunlight, the envelopes catch the light and seem to float in the air. The artist is Spencer Merolla and the location is The Glass House, a small outpost of the Invisible Dog Gallery, on Bergen Street near the F Train stop.

Three-second rules for dropped food don’t apply, that’s how fresh and clean this station is!

Get off the F train at York Street, the last stop in Brooklyn, and walk downhill toward the water, and you’ll pass this Mexican restaurant. I think it’s the only one in Dumbo, which would make it both the best and the worst. But if you’d asked my opinion after I’d just eaten there, I would have said, Not the best, not the worst.
