Dere's no guy livin' dat knows Brooklyn t'roo an t'roo, because it'd take a guy a lifetime just to find his way aroun' duh goddam town. So like I say, I'm waitin' for my train t' come when I sees dis big guy standin' deh -- dis is the foist I eveh see of him. Well, he's lookin' wild, y'know, an' I can see dat he's had plenty, but still he's holdin' it; he talks good an' is walkin' straight enough. So den, dis big guy steps up to a little guy dat's standin' deh, an' says, "How d'yuh get t' Eighteent' Avenoo an Sixty-sevent' Street?" he says..." "How long you been livin' heah," I says. All my life," he says. " I was bawn in Williamsboig," he says. "An I can tell you t'ings about dis town you neveh hoid of," he says.
"Yeah," I says "Yeah," he says. "Well, den you can tell me t'ings about dis town dat nobody else has eveh hoid of, either. Maybe you make it all up yoehself at night," I says, "befoe you go to sleep -- lie cuttin' out papeh dolls, or somp'in" "Oh yeah," he says. "You're pretty wise, ain't yuh?" "Duh boids ain't using my head for Lincoln's statue yet," I says. "But I'm wise enough to know a phoney when I see one..." Thomas Wolfe, Only The Dead Know Brooklyn
