Beloved Brooklyn memory?
I recall partying all evening in the streets when Obama won the election and the police becoming a member of in…. Very same detail occurred when Biden won — we celebrated Trump getting rid of. We located out all-around lunchtime on a beautiful sunny weekend afternoon, the cheering lasted for 30 minutes, and the full of Brooklyn turned into a single large street celebration. 

Our Brooklyn…
Sounds like Hip Hop – Specially Biggie & Jay Z, of course… and early 90’s RnB
Smells like BBQ & Soul food items. Some of my most effective recollections are at BBQ’s in BK
Preferences like a spicy margarita with a salted rim
Feels like dwelling
