Tweets of the week: ‘No desire to be anywhere but here’
We are all just twerking on the Jeep of life, rolling down the Flatbush Avenue of our destiny
Every week we at Brooklyn Magazine read the entire internet in order to curate (some of) our favorite tweets from the previous seven days. These are locally sourced, organically grown, free range nuggets of wisdom and jest for the week ending August 26.

Did I just watch a woman twerk on top of a moving Jeep passing a Cinnabon on Flatbush Ave?
Yes. Yes I did.
And if you read that collection of words and thought to yourself: “This sounds about New York,” you would be correct.

one of my favorite summer experiences is walking home from prospect park in the cool breeze after a summer movie night and watching everyone make their way out of the park and disperse through crown heights, to trains and walks home. there’s something so magic about it.
