Why Us…

What makes us the authority on what is considered a truly Brooklyn experience? With Founder Damani Higgins; Born in Ft. Green Brooklyn in the 70’s, Prospect Heights in the 80’s, Williamsburg, Boerum Hill and Ft.Greene in the 90’s, and back to Williamsburg in 2000’s. You already know, our team is down right Official!

The truly brooklyn we look for consists of the “seasoning” of the borough, that which makes it such a delicious gumbo of culture. Featuring and focusing on Brooklyn’s places, people, brands and products, as well as upcoming talent in music, fashion and art, all with authentic roots in the community.

Additionally our contributors are local, and explorers, people who value the old school Brooklyn ways and traditions, and equally embrace the ever changing communities of today. We focus on Showing off everything from well rooted Mom-n-Pop Shops, BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), and Brooklyn Museums’ first Saturday, to neighborhood Street fairs and Block parties.

The audience talk to us, from right there, on the spot! We are Brooklynites, We want to know what house party that is on the roof around the corner, and what latin mom-n-pop shop has the best rice and beans, or the Jamaican spot with the best Jerk Chicken. And when the local pub hosts a talented Brooklyn Band live, or an art exhibition…. yep, we want you to know about it.

“When you are coming to visit Brooklyn, plan your trip and plot a course!”

See our reviews of popular or “trending” spots around the borough to gain some inspiration. We understand there is so much happening in Brooklyn and it could be daunting trying to sift through it all, so we have created Itineraries to narrow down your search. Get the scoop about the upcoming Cherry Blossoms at the Botanical Garden, The Atlantic Antic street festival, First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum or the West-indian/Labor Day Parade from us so you are sure not to miss the ones you just must attend.

Our approach has always been to root for the underdogs! to help level the field for the” unlikely'” in a culture rich with potential. what really differentiates the haves from the have nots is more who knows you than who you know. And so there must be a platform to stand on that gives that exposure, credibility, and even prestige needed to be taken seriously and get that first real business deal or client push.

We love capturing the essence of the style that reflects our lifestyle and our spirit, our styles which are so diverse in all major cities world wide.

Let us connect the dots. Our portraits and journals of “Roots~n~Progress” in Brooklyn's environments have an international appeal, follow us through it all. You won't be disappointed.
