Out & About in the ‘burbs This Weekend: January 23-25, 2015

Jan 22, 2015

We aren’t even into February yet and, already, there’s lots going on in the residential real estate market…

No surprise here:Brooklyn real estatehas hit a record high
And the rental market’s no better—the “Brooklyn Bargain” is fading fast, and renters are heading to Queens
The combination—plus theeasier mortgage standards—will likely push city dwellers into the ‘burbs…

A great way to help kids visualize what life in their new digs will be like? A special “room board” they can design that shows off how they’ll decorate their bedroom—think of it as a real-life Pinterest board, for kids! So while you’re out and about exploring this weekend, pop into the ‘burbs best craft shops to pick up some supplies:

Blickis a Long Island staple and—bonus!—often hosts weekend events and artist gatherings in their Carle Place store
