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 07/31/13 : Gooney Williamsburg Edition

It's Summer. Personally it's been mostly grand and happily gooney especially when watching The Goonies in Williamsburg with hundreds of strangers reliving (or prolonging) their childhood.

Co-Sponsored by 55DSL, Adult Swim and ringed but tasty food vendors and trucks, the concert park ground was barely visible for hipster quilt to which I gladly contributed a swatch.

Anywhoo that was yesterday and here's the pic of a sky befitting idealistic dreams and the sunbeams to reach them.
After all:
"Don't you realize? The next time you see sky, it'll be over another town. The next time you take a test, it'll be in some other school. Our parents, they want the best of stuff for us. But right now, they got to do what's right for them. Because it's their time. Their time! Up there! Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here. That's all over the second we ride up Troy's bucket." -Mikey Walsh (Actor Sean Astin)
Never say "Die" and never "Ride up Troy's bucket".
