Week eight: Canarsie

My fellow blogger atreegrowsinbklyn, who works at the Navy Yard’s BLDG 92, picked my eighth nabe.

The Navy Yard Eagle proudly announces my next destination.

I feel like I’ve been here before. And I have — at least the area around Paerdegat.

Canarsie was a luxury destination a hundred years ago. Were I playing Monopoly, since I have three in a row, maybe I could start building houses and hotels of my own.

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this week’s pick was the recent death of Tamon Robinson, who was crushed by a police car that was driving on a ramp to his apartment-building while officers pursued him on suspicion of theft. (My guess is relations between residents and the men and women in blue aren’t great.)

I’m gonna need my most comfortable shoes for this one.
