The coronation is nearly upon us. Scores of well-coiffed New York gals had their chance, the deadline was extended, and now only 11 remain, waiting eagerly on the door-step of borough royalty. All this dramatic to-do here is for the third annual Miss Brooklyn Scholarship Pageant, happening this Sunday, Mar. 28.
