The other day Jim made a statement about Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island. He said they were on the same landmass. I adamantly said absolutely not because whenever we went to visit my cousins we went over at least one bridge meaning the Island was separate from Brooklyn. I remember folks in boats floating and motoring by as we drove over them.
We then got out a map and I got egg cream on my face.
At Knit Knite last week, I related this story to the group. Ruth, who grew up on the Island, responded like me in exactly the same words.
Carole got out her iPhone and looked up a Brooklyn map. Sure enough the same result appeared.
Brooklyn, Queens and LI are on the same landmass!!!! Yes, we did go over bridges as I can see there must be lots of them along the shoreline where streams come into the land from the bay and ocean. Sheesh. How did I grow up in such ignorance and only now find this out?
