Grubby Brooklyn

"Apparently Brooklyn needn't always push itself to be something else, something conscious and anxious, something pointed toward Manhattan, as on Dean Street, on Bergen, on Pacific.  Brooklyn might sometimes also be pleased, as here on Flatbush, to be its grubby, enduring self."
Jonathan Lethem, Fortress of Solitude
