a movie about my new home

Picture_5

I’ve moved to Carroll Gardens, a beautiful Brooklyn Neighborhood, over 8 years ago and never left. Here’s a documentary about the old-timers in the neighborhood that I call home.

  1. I lived right on the edge of Carroll Gardens (on Henry Street, between Kane & DeGraw) at the south end of Cobble Hill for years, and I miss it very much. I’m a little afraid to watch this documentary, because I know it will make me cry!

  2. this is heartbreaking. we have a similar situation in the north end of boston and now there are things like a raw food restaurant and clothing boutiques where mom & pops used to be. change is inevitable but it doesn’t make it any easier.

  3. Thank you for this. I grew up in Carroll Gardens and my parents, grandmother, cousins, etc still live there. My sister is a new shopkeeper (her lifelong dream). I may not live there anymore, but I, too, call it home.

    What a bittersweet tribute.

  5. it is no just Carroll Gardens that is the story of the whole of NYC and the surrounding Burroughs

  6. Thankyou for highlighting this stunning piece. Unfortunately this is happening all over the world.
