Attention all Brooklyn Lovers, Is it time for you to become a Brooklyn NY property owner? You can now start your search here and customize that search to your specific needs. Whether you are looking for a coop, condo, single family, multi-family, investment property, etc., consider this your one stop shop. Let's start the conversation.
Historical Findings: This past week I was going through old photos and found an interesting photo and article clipping from the #brooklyndailyeagle of my great grandfather John Karn from #brooklyn New York. In 1921 at the age of 55, John, his wife Elizabeth and his brother Christian toured the U.S. in John's #buick traveling in total some 15,000 miles. The attached article highlights some of their route. John placed banners on the car of some of the cities they visited. One in particular grabbed my attention, San Diego, CA as I lived there for 10 years. Shout Out to #sandiegocounty. Seems my great grandfather was an OG car enthusiast. After reading the article, I immediately thought of the movie #cannonballrun (1981) with Burt Reynolds, Dom Deluise, Dean Martin and Jackie Chan to name a few. This seems to have been a promotional piece to encourage people to travel the country in their own car. Not sure if the #autoindustry, #buick or a local dealership were involved, but still an interesting piece. I also found out that one of my extended family members has their handwritten journal of their entire trip. Next year will be the 100th anniversary of their journey. Way to go Great Grandpa John!
