When people think of New York City, they think giant skyscrapers, world class museums, and huge crowds. But there is a lot more to New York City than midtown Manhattan. Today, I want to show you some of that other world.
I never lived in Kings County - all right, let's call it Brooklyn - but I still have family there. My best friend growing up lived in Brooklyn for over 40 years before her untimely death from cancer, and another high school friend still lives in Brooklyn.
The story is fascinating - reality writes much better stories than any of us can.
I was still living in the Bronx at the time - this was indeed a memory of my young adulthood.
A blast from the past - the news coverage of that day.
