Go Sit On Your Own Stoop!

Local author John Khoury hosts a book event at Brooklyn Farmacy on Saturday.

John Khoury, longtime South Brooklyn resident, loved his neighborhood so much he wrote a book about it!

"Go Sit On Your Own Stoop: Stories of Growing up in Brooklyn in the 70s" is about Khoury's experiences. According to a press release Khoury was:

"...instantly captivated by stunning brownstones, omnipresent smell of freshly baked bread and the neck-snapping sight of crotchety old women returning home from the butcher dressed in nothing but smocks, pink curlers and a lip dangling Pall Mall."

Stop by the on Saturday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to meet Khoury and reminisce about the good old days.

Stoop? There's a word that you don't hear very often in this neighborhood now. You don't catch yuppies hanging out and socializing on the stoop and throwing block parties and turning on the Johnny Pump. As the song says, "Those were the days..."

Swing by my block on Union between Henry & Hicks. You will see 89-year-old Millie sitting on the stoop. ;-)
