  • Twitter is currently in a frenzy on what to call these. In Brooklyn these are called โ€œIceesโ€ and the red and blue are the best. PERIODT! Letโ€™s argue below! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

  • Been too busy to post much during this trip but I'll share this quick shot of my Aunt & Uncle's house.  I took the pic from their dining room table- where Ive spent countless Thxgivings while living in NYC.  I actually began traveling to NYC as a child.  The city was way diff then, but one mainstay has been my aunt's home in East Flatbush, Brooklyn- where they've lived for 55 years. .
.
E. Flatbush is one of the most unique communities in the U.S.  Feels more like Jamaica than NYC- with its reggae music blasting on every block, sea of brown faces & marina-wearing yard mon,  array of exotic fruit for sale on the street, aroma of curry wafting from storefront eateries, and even whole pigs being roasted along the curbs of busy streets. .
.
It was much different when my aunt first moved here 55 years ago. They were the first black family to move to the neighborhood.  As a young black couple in the 1960s, they had a difficult time finding a landlord willing to rent them an apartment in a decent area so buying a place was their best option.  Neighbors werent so pleased about their arrival.  My aunt told me that early on, one of her Italian neighbor "friends" told her, "If all black people were like you, I wouldnt mind living around Negroes." ๐Ÿ˜ณOver time, the neighborhood browned- transitioning from Jewish to Italian to Black American to West Indian.  Now,  White (hipsters) are just starting to return.  Probably just a matter of time before their numbers swell- as they have throughout much of Brooklyn over the last 15 years.
.
.
It impossible to talk about NYC real estate w/o talking about race- as the topics are deeply connected. White flight & its  converse, gentrification, fuel the entire process & generation of revenue.  But I'll shift focus back to how wonderful it always is to spend time with my Aunt Jean & Uncle Max, now in their 80s.  They've sheltered so many family members over the years, allowing many in the family to attend school in NYC, have a place to live while searching for their first job, or just spend extended time in the city.  Their home is always open & they are the kindest pair you could ever meet. .

  • Bruh so I got on my laptop and made this fire ass post just to find out you canโ€™t post from desktop ๐Ÿ™ƒ. Also blew out my back lifting today so it has been a good Sunday indeed โ˜ ๏ธ ANNNNNYYYYWAAAAYYYYS

These guys just dropped my second favorite project of the year so far. I honestly had not listened to a Beast Coast project before this one and they really blew me away. It seems that big fans of theirs are frowning upon their choice to switch up the style on some of the songs but in reality if they would just open their eyes and take in something new they could enjoy this album fully like everyone else. 
I might start doing reviews soon if I canโ€™t get this computer stuff figured out but Iโ€™ll give this a solid 8/10. Beast Coast definitely delivered with this project idc what nobody got to say ๐Ÿ˜ค

  • I tried it, but I canโ€™t really do it.

I know itโ€™s all in my mind but every bite reminds me of a childhood of searching for a dime to get a bag of sunflower seeds and hanging in front of my building spitting out the shells and sipping on quarter water (Flavor: red)

Some memories are not meant to be messed with.

Can you relate? #Sunflowerseeds #QuarterWater #Brooklyn #Flatbush
