Because we were poor (a divorcee with 4 kids), living in a comfortable Marine Park neighborhood, we would complain about not having new clothes, a half-way decent car, vacations, allowances ("What's that!!!"), and going to the movies every Saturday, etc, like everyone else, my mother would chastise us with "Well, you could be living in Red Hook!", where she grew up and which, until recently, was a slum area. Nowadays, Red Hook and Bushwick are the latest gentrification darlings. Even the Gowanus Canal is being cleaned up! Good luck!
By the way, folks, today is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" day. It was published this day 75 years ago.
