Straight From Brooklyn, Better Known As Crooklyn

What's crackin in BK, the short list:

Celebrate Brooklyn! has started at the Prospect Park Bandshell. This Saturday is kicking off with DJ Premier, Jeru, Masta Ace, Wordsworth, and Black Moon, all under the guise of The Brooklyn Dodgers. It's $3, you cheap bastards.

• Brooklyn needs more banks and fewer check cashing bodegas. Otherwise, where are we going to cash all of these huge Price Is Right checks?

• On a serious note: South Williamsburg is on lockdown. Cops are posted up on nearly every block outside of my apartment, routinely stopping anything with a pulse.
For a while I thought they were just protecting gentrified hipsters, possibly from small robberies, but I just found out that there is a real reason for all the hoopla. BoundlessNY happens to think this theory is garbage, and has a different opinion. I concur.

If you are so inclined, you can check your neighborhood up-to-date crime breakdown here.

Waterfalls now scour the line between Manhattan & Brooklyn, making the concrete jungle appear just a little bit more jungle than concrete.
