Brooklyn, and especially my neighborhood Greenpoint/Williamsburg is filled with good looking men with good looking beards. Last night on the G train I saw one of the best yet.

Bike baskets and boxes

(Source) Hey Hart Beat. How’s your night going? I’ve been riding my bike so much this summer that I’ve all but destroyed the box attached to the back of my usually trusty bike. The box is pretty old anyway since my dad built it for me back in early college. Now that I use my
