"While to the stranger’s eyes one street was no different from another, we all knew where our ‘neighborhood’ somehow ended. Beyond that, a person was… a stranger."
- Arthur Miller, playwright born in Brooklyn
"Born and bred Brooklyn - U.S.A
They call me Adam Yauch - but I'm M.C.A
Like a lemon to a lime - a lime to a lemon
I sip the def ale with all the fly women"
- Beastie Boys, No Sleep Till Brooklyn
