About 225 years ago, the British invaded Brooklyn. They came with their Hessian friends and generally created quite a mess in the Battle of Brooklyn. Now, they're back.
The signs of Britness are everywhere in Brooklyn. On one end of Park Slope there is a Key Food that has a Brit Food section - spotted dick anyone. On the other end is The Chip Shop. More and more we hear the Queens English spoken on the streets. [Think Corgies rather than Ridgewood].
I found a great web posting about being British in Brooklyn. Thought I'd share it. So, pull up a pint of Fullers London Pride, and read about why your fellow countrymen feel so at home here.
