Brooklyn Tweets of the Week: Borough heroes with baguettes, free rides, and roller skates
Not all heroes wear capes. A roundup of (some of) our favorite locally sourced tweets for the week ending July 30.
Not all heroes wear capes. Some rock a pink cowboy hat.
This week we are singing the praises of Brooklyn’s actual finest, in tweets: There’s the carb0-loaded firefighter in Williamsburg, for example. And there’s the bodega guy whose hospitality extends beyond his door. And the lady who gave away her flame-emblazoned roller skates in Bushwick.
If you see something, say something: Be sure to tag us if you see anything that should be noted next week. Have a great weekend! Maybe we’ll see you out and about.

Bushwick is wild, I complimented some girl on her pink cowboy hat, which led to her giving me a pair of rollerskates with flames on them, and now I’m skating home pic.twitter.com/p412c5gzzh

it’s a beautiful day in Bushwick! the young man exclaimed as he stood on the corner of flushing and evergreen, flies buzzing around the pigeon carcass and spilled chicken and rice on the sidewalk
