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.

PhotoWed 10/20/10 : An Unlikely pair Edition

I'm referring in the title to the tube socks of course, well no, not really.

Granted, the gent in the photo, complete as he is in camouflage, beret and that aforementioned pair of white tube socks is an unlikely somebody to be (of all things) holding up the wall on Prospect Place, but as I watched him hold it down, or keep it up (whichever you prefer) he was joined by a woman who seemed not to know him, and also seemed to be very much the prototypical Brooklyn Sunday church lady.

And there they are.
