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.

Dumb Bike Moves, originally uploaded by b'klynborn.

The thing about these bikes being locked up here isn't just that they're easy to steal. It's that there were poles just a few feet away that the bikes could have been locked up to. And that the habit of sticking bikes in tree beds is just lazy and not good for whatever is planted there. As someone who's had many bikes stolen in this fair burgh, It's not something you want to experience but this type of move makes me think they'd deserve whatever happens.
