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.

Fort Greene

DER SCHWARZE K├ÂLNER Dale Hall, an Englishman who spent 17 years in Germany, moved to the United States six years ago. He and Randi Lockemann, left, imported German furniture. On Aug. 8, the two are opening a beer hall in Fort Greene, where they live. Sausages, communal tables and 18 German brews on tap are all you need to know. The name, Mr. Hall said, refers both to Cologne’s famous sooty cathedral (schwarze means black) and to Mr. Hall’s Afro-Jamaican heritage: 710 Fulton Street (South Oxford Street ), Fort Greene, Brooklyn, (347) 841-4495.
