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.

Law and Order grows a fly on the wall in Brooklyn

I watched Law & Order, the "SUV" edition of NBC's long running multi-generational cop ensemble and they did Williamsburg tonight.

Sooo silly. A caricature only slightly more ridiculous than the real thing. Fave quote,"sometimes I think I should move back to Wisconsin"

That and the debut of Jeff Goldblum as a potentially new-agey genius cop character.
It's a guilty pleasure that answers my question of why these shows are still on. No clip, they don't need my pr.

The investigative drama even managed in the recent bedbug epidemic, must felt (complained about?) by hipsters, in the episode bedbugs become a DNA bank as a lab tech says "we can extract the blood they ate for up to two months". eww.
