Boon In Brooklyn Blogs Builds Mystique, Says Vinnie

pizza guy in bklynVinnie Caldaroni, retired Pizza man in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, was not surprised yesterday when told that Brooklyn has some of the bloggiest neighborhoods in the U.S.

“Wadda you kidding? Of course. We got everything,” said Vinnie with a wave of his hand, although he was not so cavalier when told that actually Clinton Hill was the bloggiest neighborhood in the U.S., with Park Slope almost as bloggy, according to  research by of 3000 neighborhoods to come up with the 10 “most blogged about.” Harlem was #8.

“They got brownstones over there, wadda you expect?” said Vinnie. Since he retired from the pizza business Vinnie and his friends take the bus to Atlantic City (“You go on Tuesday’s they give you free quarters to gamble”) and occasionally “sell schmatas on eBay.” But now he is going to tell all his friends to start blogging so Bensonhurst can be #1, where it belongs.

“Now if the Yankees get some pitchin’ maybe we’ll be somewhere,” said Vinnie. He started to walk away and came back and whispered in my ear. “So what’s a blog?”

“Brooklyn is Brooklyn. There’s no place like it in the world. And when you travel to other places in the world you really realize that. They got nothin’.” – See Mike Smollar, 59, photographed in his home in Bensonhurst, in Seth Kushner’s The Brooklynites .
