Quotes:
If you want to make Brooklyn in words or film or paint, you must see the way the sun defines the silent streets on an early Sunday morning, sculpting trees, buildings, fire hydrants, stray dogs, and wandering people with an almost perfect clarity.
-- Pete Hamill

I live in Brooklyn. By choice.
-- A House on the Heights
Truman Capote

Serene was a word you could put to Brooklyn, New York. Especially in the summer of 1912.
-- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Betty Smith

One looks down from the Brooklyn Bridge on a spot of foam or a little lake of gasoline or a broken splinter or an empty scow; the world goes by upside down with pain and light devouring the innards, the sides of flesh bursting, the spears pressing in against the cartilage, the very armature of the body floating off into nothingness.
-- Black Spring
Henry Miller
