In case you haven’t noticed, Brooklyn’s been having a bit of a moment for oh, about the last 15 years. Now that everyone has re-embraced the place your grandparents lived before they fled to the suburbs, PBS is collecting memories, stories and insights about growing up in and living in Brooklyn for a crowdsourced documentary called Brooklyn Best.
What have you done in Brooklyn that you couldn’t do anywhere else? What have you learned? Even if you’ve just briefly visited the borough, PBS wants to hear from you. If you can’t use your words good, they’ll also take pictures and videos, as long as they’re your own personal reflections on Brooklyn. All you need to do is upload your words, pictures or video to the website here, and then you wait to see if your memories made it into the documentary.
This is your chance to help shape the historical record when it comes to Brooklyn, so whether you want to talk about seeing the massive changes that have swept through or you want to talk about falling in lust for a day at Tiki Disco, make sure you get your story told.
