Amazon Prime Day is today and it’s the most nakedly modern holiday, in that it’s entirely built around separating you from your money as you buy crap you probably don’t need (and it skips the pretenses of being tied to religion or appreciating your mother). The day is filled with deals if you’re an Amazon Prime member, and the deals this year seem to be actually decent compared to last year’s yard sale of trash. Do we like Amazon, they of the war against publishers and awful work conditions? IDK any more but it is my no. 1 place to get episodes of The Flash so maybe it’s a little ok.

So we’ll let others point you to the best deals overall: You’re here because you’re asking yourself: How can I use my membership to this internet superstore to get crap that shows how much I love Brooklyn? Well here are the best (relatively) Brooklyn-related items to spend your money on.

Goorin Bros. Men’s Brooklyn NY Baseball cap, if you want everyone to know hey I like hats but not any particular sports team and I like Brooklyn but not anything more than the most obvious image that even a baby from Guadalajara could look at at say “hey, that must be from Brooklyn.”

Notorious B.I.G. Men’s It’s The Brooklyn Way Adult T-Shirt. It’s true that when Biggie died his last words were “remember me most in T shirts sold on an internet discount portal’s made-up holiday, modeled by white guys.”

Run All Night (Blu-ray). It’s about a Brooklyn gangster doing … I dunno what, but you can bet Liam Neesons is gonna point a gun at someone really dramatically at some point, upset that something has been taken away from him that he wants back (not to be confused with Taken).

Kenneth Cole New York Men’s Williamsburg Stripe Knit Trunk. Sadly, this Williamsburg style has since been torn down and replaced by much more expensive condominium briefs. You’ll be asked to vacate the underwear by the first of the month.
