Ridgewood is a nice area. What makes it particularly distinctive are the many blocks lined with row houses built with unusual yellow bricks.

That diner is on the little triangle by Rust Ave and Maurice, if I recall correctly. That's only about 10 minutes walk along Rust to Grand Ave, which is in turn an eight minute walk through this weird little residential pocket to Metropolitan and Forest Aves, which is assuredly in Ridgewood.

My dad and I were in Ridgewood proper two weeks ago on the way back to PS from my grandfather's grave in Glendale. We went to the always estimable Rudi's Pastry Shop on Seneca and Myrtle, and then stopped in at a weekly flea market on Fairview, Linden to Gates. Certainly the flea market was a real Hipster thing, but by and large the neighborhood looks very much like it did 15 years ago when I was working on the local volunteer ambulance.
