About this Blog

BrooklynBornThis blog started in my head when I listened in the 90's to friends who feared Brooklyn and newcomers who blogged about BK as if it barely existed before they arrived. Brooklyn as Tabula Rasa. My blog satisfies my need to hear and air feelings of B'klyn from the people whose life experience was born here. Also I hope to provide balance to some of the revisionist historical musings I've seen how Brooklyn and her residents used to be, we're still here. If we can all live as best possible while appreciating the past and neighbors we've inherited that would be great too.

It's born...


After much over consideration and constant yet inadequate planning, the blog you are reading, "Brooklyn Born" was, well, born on this rainy day in Feb. of 2008. The virtual weight at this point is impossible to measure in any real world and or useful sense, however the idea I hope is clear from the title; this blog will be from and about perspectives born in the borough of Brooklyn new york city.

This being the first posting I can say thankfully I no longer have to think about what to say in my first posting, or to put it locally;

Now dat it's stah'ed I don't gotta worry 'bout it no more.

(that's a one-timer folks, I won't be writing that way again but I know my uncle would appreciate it. ; )
