Brooklyn Tweets of the Week: The borough gets philosophical—and spooky
Fall is in the air! Here's a roundup of (some of) our favorite locally sourced tweets for the week ending October 8
This week we’re peeping leaves and at least one Flatbush home that has really leaned into Halloween. Also, our tweeters are pondering: Does Brooklyn most resemble an early aughts romcom, cheugy San Francisco 2.0, or downtown Shenzhen?
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!

walking through Cobble Hill, I feel like an extra in an early aughts romcom starring two white middle schoolers

Prospect Heights is possibly the most cheugy place on planet earth aside from San Francisco.
A small child in an NPR shirt just came up to me and tried to steal my kettle chip.

Shout out to the person alone in a folding chair in Prospect Park, having a phone conversation about refusing to pay a dollar a piece for Cialis. Go get it friend!

Always love Sunday open streets in BedStuy. We got a church blasting “O Happy Day,” the Nigerian place down the block booming Burna Boy, there’s an old dj rockin New Jack Swing with the corner family bbq, and somebody just rolled thru bumping Pachelbel’s Canon in D in their car.

For as many journalists live in Prospect Heights, it’s incredible how many local news stories get its geography quite wrong
