Canarsie’s where I’m from.

Smack-dab, in the middle of Brooklyn (NYC) is the neighborhood of Canarsie. That’s where I’m from, born and bred.

I hung out on street corners, in the alleys, and on the stoops. I ate classic Brooklyn fair of pizza, calzone, hotdogs with mustard and sauerkraut, and knishes with mustard on top. I went fishing off the pier after getting bait from ‘Pop Klee’s.’ I played stickball, basketball, football and baseball in the school yard. I was a typical Brooklyn kid.

I am from Canarsie.
