Best Neighborhood for Summer Block Parties (2008)


If you don't like little girls in matching spray-painted tees popping and locking in unison, 10-foot towers of speakers playing old-school reggae, neighbors acting like family, and/or burgers, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, corn, greens, and cold beer, then keep your ass out of BED-STUY come August, when the block parties really get thumping. And better yet, keep all your friends out too. You've got bad judgment.
