Brownstones

"You know those gorgeous old brownstones in New York City?" Actually I do because I've been there and someone told me, but before then I would have assumed that a Brownstone would have been a brown stone and then I wouldn't have had clue what you were on about. Is that as dumb as thinking that Greenland is Green (as I overheard an American lady on an aeroplane say after the pilot had announced that the coast of Greenland could be seen from the window)?
We don't have Brownstones in England.

Excellent piece.

I didn't know what a brownstone was - but I found it fairly obvious from the context that it's more than just a brown stone! :)
