Bright Lights Blacked Out City

Ten years ago today (8/14/13) the US was in the midst of the largest power outage in it’s history and I was wandering back to my apartment in Brooklyn.  

After a day spent walking from SoHo across the Brooklyn Bridge with 1000’s of others I was almost back to my own apartment.  The trek moved slowly not only due to the distance but the need to stop and partake in the amazing sense of community at various bars/restaurants and pop-up block parties along the way.  

I had been in NY for a little over a year and while I felt I was getting the hang of the city it wasn’t until this event that I truly felt at home.  

The night concluded with sleeping on the roof of our apartment building (due to the heat).  And as I drifted off to sleep listening to the sounds of a neighbor strumming his guitar on the next roof I remember actually being able to see the stars overhead for what felt like the first time in over a year.

The skyline was dark but the city, like my new journey, felt so bright.

Something about the start of Spring that has me longing for stroll through Brooklyn Heights.  To aide in that longing today will be a playlist of songs tied to Brooklyn.

TBT the cover of a playlist I created for my first two roommates in Brooklyn circa 2003. Pardon the odd dimensions and covering of last names.

Found this ole broad in a local hardware store on Court Street in BK Heights about 4 years ago and she has been on my key chain ever since. After many a bruise from poking my thigh through my pocket it’s time to bid her adieu. Thanks for the titillation.
