celebrating MJ brooklyn-style

August 31, 2009 |  Category:   nyc






Spike Lee threw a Brooklyn birthday tribute party for Michael Jackson on Saturday and we went as it was right in our neighborhood in Prospect Park. The day was supposed to be a wash with heavy rainfall, but aside from a few sprinkles, it ended up being a great day for an outdoor party, celebrating the music, singing and dancing along to thousands and thousands of other MJ fans. I loved watching everybody – and I mean everybody – from 4 year olds to the police that were there watching over the crowd, sing along. There was a lot of Brooklyn pride that afternoon and August 29th is officially Michael Jackson Day in Brooklyn as declared by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz (yeah, Al Sharpton was there too). And Mia? I can see it now. You know the girl who gets up on a table to dance at a party? I can see that being her in 15 years. She so desperately wanted to be in the middle of any dance circle we came across, especially after seeing another 5 year old girl bust out the Michael moves in a big way. Girl is a ham, what can I say.

    I can’t believe MJ is really gone, he’s a legend. I think this is the best to remember him, celebrating his legacy and amazing music.
