    Gentrification or Not: Those Weren't Firecrackers: Last night on the northern fringe...

    Last night on the northern fringe of Park Slope we thought we heard people shooting off single firecrackers. They may not have been, at least in some nabes. For instance, Crown Heights: "People everywhere! Cars honking! People shouting, singing, dancing in the streets! Gunshots fired into the air!! (good 'ole Crown Heights!). So happy that everyone is so happy!" Gotta' love celebratory gunfire, except for the party pooper who writes "could have done without the gunshots." [Brooklynian]
