Why I love Brooklyn AND the Brooklyn men



I've always had a love affair with Brooklyn. The first time I came here I was 6 mos. old. We came to visit my dad's sisters. All five of his sisters used to reside here. Me and my two cousins were the only ones raised upstate. So, we came a lot to see the family. Our parents would let us stay here for two weeks every summer. My mom told me it was because she wanted me around more black kids...lol! I learned how to fight here, play streetball,jump turnstiles(lol),doubledutch and countless other things! I've always loved it here! I liked the grittiness,the hustle and style.

I was going to come to college here but my mom axed that real quick! I wanted to go to NYU just like she did but she felt like I would wild out and waste my parents 30k/year tuition! Thinking about it she was probably right! Ha! At any rate even when I got to school. I always dated men from BK. I don't know, it was something about the style,how they walked,the sexiness and the confidence they exuded! "I'm from Bed-Stuy son!" I loved it! Now don't get me wrong. I've dated dudes from the West coast,South(hell I was going to marry a dude from the south)Mid-Atlantic states but there's something about a Brooklyn boy! I've dated dudes from Queens,Harlem and the Bronx! NOPE! They were lacking something! LOL! My favorite Brooklyn Boy is "The Teacher" I think that boy is do dayum sexy. I could eat him up! LOL!

Anyway this post was supposed to be about how I love Brooklyn because there are always street fairs and block parties! I don't know how it turned into men...lol! Lawd I crack myself up! This weekend I was chillin at Habana Outpost with my girl for her bday. Habana was having a little block party. Carousel, clowns etc set up for the kids. DJ spinnin' old school hip hop.Then my boy was like you staying for KRS-ONE? WHAT? Hold up? KRS-ONE is going to perform? He was like yeah in like 10 min! Maaan, say word? Next thing you know KRS-ONE jumped on stage and rocked it for about 30min! He did "My Philosophy","Mc's Act Like they Don't Know", "Black Cop" and some freestyle shyt! It was hot! That's another reason why I love livin' in BK! The culture,diversity and the flyness! Here's some pics of KRS-ONE!

I'll be visiting my girl in Brooklyn for Labor Day. Let's see how I like it. I've been thinking of grad school in NY, but all the times I've visited, I've never wanted to live there. Love the shopping and partying and the atomosphere but it's so busy, busy, busy...I feel like if I tripped off the sidewalk and had a heart attack, nobody would notice. lol

@Aretha I swear they're sooo damn delicious!

@Suga I would NEVER live in Manhattan. I think the people are sooo damn rude and pretentious! In Bk it's more like a neighborhood. I used to live in Bed-stuy and everyone on the block new each other and would say hello! We had block parties and people would have bbq's for all the neighbors! I'm used to people being friendly because I grew up an hour outside of Buffalo in a small ass town. I came to school here and people didn't talk..lol! And I didn't care! When I moved to Houston people would speak and I was like why the hell are they speaking to me...lmbao! I really think you just need to find a good neighborhood! People are nicer than you think! There are many parts of BK that are very residential! Come try it out!

I've never been to NY. Which is crazy. But I have met my share of dudes from NY. Queens, Buffalo and I have no idea where the current friend is from. At any rate, we didn't mesh well. I think I need a dude from Texas!

@Serenity I'm from Buffalo and would not date a dude from there!Upstate dudes don't have the flyness like the dudes from the city! Queens dudes are usually corny. I NEVER fair well with them! Just my Brooklyn dudes!

I've dated many dudes from TX. I was going to marry one that lives in Houston but is from New Orleans! He was cool as a fan but he didn't have that "it" LOL! BK all the way! ha! All the shopping you like to do YOU need to visit NY! This is truly the shopping mecca!
