I guess you'd have to call this Social Commentary. Although, using that phrase makes me cringe because I'm not very social and I don't much care for commentary. I am not from New York, and it occurred to me that others might find interest in reading stories about Brooklyn from an outsiders point of view. I grew up in a midwestern suburb where it was safe, and garbage went in big cans hidden behind small buildings. So, in this place, my perspective is most certainly different.
