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 11:45 pm does anybody know what that banging is?

Seriously. For the most of the day and all through tonight (currently 11:46pm) I've been hearing what sounds like a piledriver sending "I" beams into the area of Atlantic Av and Vanderbilt. I'm blocks away and the echos of pounding haven't let up. Now I like to party as much as the next handsome young lad, but listening to "Clyde's Car Crusher" all through the night is not going help me knock out this flu. Plus it's late for this type of work, no? Anybody have a clue?
