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.

Photo Wed 4/8/09: Spring's back When's Koch coming?

I don't know what those blossoms are, they're not cherries

This park bordered by Fulton St, Carlton Ave and start of Greene Ave in the Fort Greene swath of Brooklyn, has a rich history, which is detailed on the park's plaque.

But more recently (I believe in 1982) was rebuilt and rededicated in a ceremony that Mayor Koch was supposed to attend (as my cubscout master was told, who then told us cubs) it would have been a big deal seeing hizzoner in the Fort Greene of that time but whatever, he didn't show and the park still opened.
