19) The Stoop
This is why you moved here, right? To do some stoop-drinking? The Brooklyn stoop is an icon and those who have one are the envy of those who live in those horrible, stabbing reaches of glass and metal on the Williamsburg waterfront. The word "stoop," like the words "cookie" and "coleslaw," is a lexical gift from our friends the Dutch. And you know the Dutch would totally love for all of us here in Brooklyn to knock back a few beers and eat a few cookies, sitting on our stoops.
