I really like the street I live on. I live above a store, on a commercial street in a pretty quiet area of Brooklyn. I like that my street is commercial. I like seeing the buses buzz by and hearing the bustle. I like stepping out onto the sidewalk and feeling like I am already in the thick of it. And I like the efficient way that information travels.
For example last night, at midnight, two hours after I went to bed I realized that the Yankees won the World Series. I knew because suddenly the street was filled with hundreds of people cheering. Even the cars were excited. They were zooming up and down the street beeping and hollering.
This neighborhood loves it's local teams. The year the giants won the Super Bowl it was the same scene except more so and for a longer time.
I just wish I could get more news this way. I had to look online to see that Bloomberg won the mayoral election. I guess his fans are a quieter set.
