Petropolis is here and much more…..

Lot’s to blog about today. Seems as if the idea of a Petropolis has come to Brooklyn. Can’t wait for the next hurricane. Red Hook was really badly hit. But that is not stopping people:

I went to elementary school with kids who were bussed in from the Red Hook projects. Largest and most dangerous projects in the country, if not the world. At least at that time.

And Brooklyn continues to be cooler than cool (who knew?):

Now they have branded Brooklyn:

Interesting state of affairs. I still wonder where it will all lead to. Perhaps another playground for the rich?

I am uploading a live performance of In The Circus Of You that I took from my seat at Zebra. Post that soon.
