The Brooklyn Inquisition

the unknown comic livesHarry locked his mother in the closet. Street photographer, historian and journalist Brian Berger has other ways of getting what he needs but get it he will, for the nine to fivers, the brown baggers, the strap hangers, the working stiffs, the squares but mostly for ya’ll, in New Lots, Mill Basin and Mott Haven, Rockaway Beach, Astoria and Tompkinsville— even folks in Chinatown, my Chinatown. But which Chinatown? Ah, Grasshopper, you will learn that there is more to life than 8th Avenue and Avenue U. There are also Q&As, many of them, and soon there will be more. Mrs. Manicotti (ASC)

Mrs. Manicotti (ASC) is Brooklyn as fuck. She grew up on Mill Street, Red Hook & is a proud graduate of Lafayette High School, where she “went punk” and reggae with Linton Kwesi Johnson & later accepted calypso into her life with the Mighty Sparrow. That said, she’s not a huge fan of Trini-Chinese cuisine! A former President of the South Brooklyn Camera Club, she lives in Marine Park with her teenage son & three cats, Mango, Percy, & Kingfish.
