No thug, just a born and raised Brooklynite who knows this borough like the back of her hand! Not as book smart as many of the newcomers, but definitely more street smart.
I grew up in Windsor Terrace/Prospect Park S.W. area when it was an undesirable place to live - during the 70's and 80's (a time when all my fellow classmates were flocking out of Brooklyn to the suburbs - many who've now wished they never left). I'm so glad I decided to stay and experience the change for the better that Brooklyn has become!
