Brooklyn keeps on takin' it, worldwide we're known for that!

Ahh, Good old Brooklyn Day. Yes I know that its really Brooklyn/Queens day but honestly, does anyone really care about Queens?? Yes I admit, Queens girls were definitely the shit when we were in high school. And the Q-boro always had the lock on summer BBQ's. But Queens has always been in our shadow and it shall remain that way.

For a Brief history on how Brooklyn Day came to be click here.

Remember when we would have the day off from school, and you would laugh at your friends who lived in Brooklyn but went to school in Manhattan?? I don't think there was a Manhattan day. Now is seems that everyone gets the day off for Brooklyn day. I'm opposed to that, but hey, I get Jewish holidays off so who am I to complain.

Now there are many ways to celebrate Brooklyn. You can attend an event at the Celebrate Brooklyn festival this weekend, you can head to a Brooklyn landmark like Coney Island this weekend, or you can do what I will do, listen to my favorite songs from some of my favorite artists, from Brooklyn, about Brooklyn. Over the next few days I will post some of my favorite Brooklyn songs. ( I will zshare them soon too ) but for now, I will leave you with one of my all time favorites!
