Views of a born and bred Brooklynite. This blog satisfies my need to hear and air feelings of B'klyn from the people whose life experience were born here. I hope to provide balance to some of the revisionist historical musings I've seen about how Brooklyn and her residents from some newcomers who talk about BK as if it barely existed before they arrived. Brooklyn as Tabula Rasa. If we can all live as best possible while appreciating the past and neighbors we've inherited that would be great too.
