Among the items in a recent "Brooklinks" post, The Gowanus Lounge posted two I thought I'd forward.
The first item originates off a Bay Ridge Blog post yesterday: several trees were recently planted to replace ones lost in this summer's tornado. (Yes, we actually had one of those in Brooklyn, remember?)
The second item comes from a newspaper, rather than a blog. The Daily News reports that Brooklyn residents had the best vocabularies in a test administered in Times Square, beating all four of the other boroughs and a special "tourist" category.
