#132, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn
It's been a slow couple of days here at the old &7. Much of this has to do with the font-loving/architecture-digging part of my brain being subjected to an onslaught of Osmonds billboards and dynamite-encrusted Yakov Smirnoff ads in Branson, Missouri. What a country! But I'm never too overwhelmed to talk to all y'all about the many charms of brick.
Fortunately, I'm not alone in my brick-gazing ways, and for those who'd like to be convinced of brick's many charms, I suggest you take a peek at the new spin-off blog from Invisible Paris, called, aptly, Bricks in Paris. It's a lovely fledgling project exploring everything from crumbling French 2nd/3rd BC beauties to 1920's municipal architecture. In the meantime, I'll hit ya with some Brooklyn brick. That would be figuratively, of course.
