Yes, it is near the Verrazano-Narrows bridge, which connects Brooklyn to Staten Island, but I originally thought that Cropsey Avenue is best suited to be on Staten Island due to the legend of Cropsey, who has haunted children’s dreams for decades.

I went out tonight for a Friday night like I usually do, and the group of friends bailed on me at the last minute to see the movies at AMC Empire in Times Square. Not a big deal. I can go to the movies by myself because I’m a big girl, and I would have no one to share my popcorn with. But AMC wanted to charge me $20 for a movie after 9PM, which I was not so fond of, no matter how much popcorn I got!

If you are a transplant like me, you likely grew up with some stereotypes of New York City as a whole.

As I was walking today, I was glad to see that some people are still trying to keep rap in Brooklyn alive!
I had the intentions to see a sunset at Coney Island, but Mother Nature did not agree. The sky over the ocean at Coney Island was an interesting site though.
