About this Blog

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.

FUN, FREE, FAMILY Event by FES this Sat, Marcy Playground

Just found out about a fun, free community event in Brooklyn THIS Saturday, 12/6 in support of #DontStealPossible —  a movement created to raise awareness of the NYC education crisis and the 143,000 students stuck in failing NYC schools. 

In celebration of this one-of-a-kind campaign, there will be a #DontStealPossible neighborhood block party on Saturday, December 6th at Marcy Playground (corner of Myrtle and Nostrand, in Bed-Stuy) from 12-3pm that features family-friendly entertainment and activities including music, arts & crafts, face-painting and storytelling, as well as complimentary bites, drinks and snacks.

Here's a map to get your orientated, check googlemaps for specifics.
Local area favorites such as artisanal handcrafted donuts from Dough, tacos from Tacombi, hot apple cider, hot cocoa, and more will be available to attendees, at NO CHARGE.
Kids and parents will also have the chance to sign and complete the #DontStealPossible mural by renowned New York native artist, Greg Lamarche, created last month for the #DontStealPossible rally in Foley Square that brought over 1,000 parents, teachers and kids together.

And for the event, see the flyer above for further details:
