BEST RESTAURANT – The River Café in Brooklyn Heights.
WEEKEND GETAWAY – Always love a Sag Harbor/Hamptons weekend.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOUR OFFICE BESIDES THE PEOPLE – The panoramic views of Brooklyn, New York City, New Jersey, the bridges. It exhilarates you.

FAVORITE PARK – Prospect Park is Brooklyn’s Central Park, one of the few remaining indigenous forests in the city.
GO-TO SPORTS VENUE – Barclays Center. How did we live without it?

FAVORITE PIZZA JOINT – Lucali in Carroll Gardens: best pizza ever. No reservations, BYOB, always a line. Worth every minute.
MOST FAMOUS RESIDENT – Maybe not most famous but my favorite famous resident: Barbra Streisand.
FAVORITE LESSER-KNOWN TOURIST ATTRACTION – If you don’t make it to the iconic cyclone roller coaster in Coney Island, I would have to recommend Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

WHERE TO GO AFTER A LOSS? – We don’t lose.
