After a magazine internship in NYC in 2001, Kristen fell in love with the city and all it has to offer. Soon she realized that she was a Brooklynite at heart and began calling Brooklyn home.

Will she ever leave what she considers the city's best borough? Fuhgeddaboudit!

Experience:

Kristen currently works full-time for a New York food magazine, where she serves as Managing Editor of the publication's marketing website. She spends her free time exploring the streets of Brooklyn and also contributes to CheapTricksNYC, a blog devoted to living on a budget in New York City.

Education:

After graduating from college, Kristen completed the Columbia University Summer Publishing Program.

By Kristen Goode:

I believe Brooklyn is the best place on earth to live, and whether I'm biking through Prospect Park, walking along the Brooklyn Bridge, or just eating a hot dog from Nathan's in Coney Island, I'm happy to be a part of it all.

My favorite thing about the borough? There's something for everyone. From the arts scene in DUMBO to the famed DiFara's pizza in Midwood, there's a flame to fuel every passion.

After living in Brooklyn for several years, I know the basics (and more!), and I hope to share them with you while at the same time exploring the offbeat places and overlooked treasures that give Brooklyn its unique character.
