spread love, it's the brooklyn way...

...so said the late, great notorious b.i.g. and i felt that quote is appropriate for this video, by alicia stewart and gerry sievers (dunno who you are, but respect to you) which spreads all kinds of brooklyn love (and some history and perspective, too) for good old do or die bed stuy. i have to completely agree with the commentary: bed stuy is, if nothing else, a genuine neighborhood where people say, hello, how are you, to each other for no reason other than the fact that they are neighbors.

and the soundtrack to this video = perfection.
