weekly wrap up

We’re going to wrap things up a little early today. Grace took the red-eye from Portland back to Brooklyn last night. So while she recoups from the flight and acclimates to the time change, I thought I’d welcome her back with some of my favorite details of Brooklyn homes from the sneak peek archives. So enjoy the last weekend in July. We’re going to rest up and we’ll see you back on Monday! –Amy

  5. I just left New York working on another Room for the Nate Berkus Show, and I was trying all I could to get to Brooklyn.

    The next time I am in NYC, it is a must!

    Please…there are already so many ads on this website. Now I log on and the first thing that pops up is a blaring pop-up ad blasting music that requires me to x out of it?

    Really disappointed at what this website has turned into, and sadly won’t be returning if I’m forced to sit through commercials. Many other websites are able to support themselves without resorting to annoying and invasive pop-up commercials.

      there should NOT be a pop up ad on d*s- ever. i’m emailing you to trouble shoot. we never, ever approve those ads.
