10 Brooklyn Facts - In A Brooklyn Minute (Week 92)



Ten facts about Brooklyn - interesting, odd, fun, historic and even surprising. Some of the facts are reasons why I love the borough of Brooklyn so much - and why some of us when we are asked while traveling where we're from say "Brooklyn" and not "New York City".

Possibly one of the facts is a bit subjective... But I haven't found anyone yet who disagreed.

Do you have any interesting Brooklyn facts to share?

The song is called "Whirlwind Romance" by Jason Matherne (aka youtube.com/lljamelle11). I found the title of his song just as fitting as the music itself.
