Originally from Brooklyn

If ever I become a Jeopardy contestant, I am self-identifying as “Pamela from Brooklyn. The original Brooklyn.”

Long before it was discovered by the cool crowd, I was there.
Not bragging. I didn’t know it was the place to be until I left to live life elsewhere.

How cool can it feel to say I come from Avenue Z and Ocean Parkway?
Long Island is nothing to boast about.

I could go home again but to what? People I’ve never met?
Get out of our apartment.
We made it cool. Not you.
