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.

Between flower boxes on Franklin, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Borough Hall Park and all the rest of the borough the time for nature local color is here. As I mentioned in my last "Missed it Mondays" feature, I meet up with spring at the Botanic Gardens and here's more of what it looked like:

Just another reminder while people are currently enjoying a casual 花見 or "Hanami" which means "cherry blossom viewing", the big BBG festival "Sakura Matsuri" which features music, crafts, snacks (is specific areas) and in the last few years Japanophile teens in costume, is scheduled for May 1-2nd.
