About this Blog

My photo

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.

Hap'nins Thu-Sun 7/10-7/13

Last weekend's 4day sabbatical has me in a mood so I present suggests for the weekend of 7/10 - 7/13

Thurs 7/10
„INOPERAbLE in Nü York"
10th, 6pm-1am,
Alphabeta, 70 Greenpoint ave. Brooklyn

Basically this event is happening at Alphabeta a new supply store catering almost exclusively to the needs of spray paint artists. The store has been condemned by an attention deprived politician which of course means everyone will be enticed to check it out. Plus free paint!
more details:

Artist's Reception @RE*POP
68 Washington Avenue (near Navy Yard)
7:30 - 11pm

(also Friday)
Celebrate Brooklyn
Prospect Park Bandshell
Music by "Brazilian Girls" "Chicha Libre" - "Ticklah" - 7pm (Free)

Note* Despite the band's name actual brazilian girls are not promised to appear.
yeh that disclaimer is part of all the band's press since I met them years ago at nublu, but it's no less fun a reminder than;
"There's no sex in the champane room"

Sunday 7/13
