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.

Fall Foliage Fotos Series #4

A shot from Victorian Flatbush as the home mongers call it, I still think of the area as Kensington. If you disagree with that assessment, prove me wrong.

Besides this being one of the few Brooklyn neighborhoods that seems to have a ban on yard fences (for which I'm grateful) it's also a sequestered land of large classically built homes, I know they're "Victorian" but they make me think fondly of plantations, which I generally never do, and are frequently used by savvy location scouts as exteriors for TV shows.
