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.

Biggggg past week and weekend saw the closing of throwback hole in the wall venue, BPMStudio.


Pride and pageantry and Ru Paul thousands more proud folks floated down 5th ave in the City


And a new cafe emerges on Bedford Ave and Park Place taking over my brief beloved burger spot.

Have a Happy and safe Fourth of July!
