Happy Easter to all my friends and family!!!
Sister sister! You've never seen a nun shut it down like this one. The judges of singing competition "The Voice of Italy" couldn't believe their ears when they heard Sister Cristina Scuccia belting out Alicia Keys' "No One," bu...

This is a closet door. Asking me to install one is like asking me to build the Cyclone. So, I called  Checklist Home Services http://checklisthomeservices.com/ with a whole mess of things that needed fixing at my new place - each more monumental than the last. We talked it over a Skype video call (I showed Liz around with my tablet), agreed on a price and two guys showed up. In half a day, everything was taken care of. Hey, at least I got the Mercury Paint - it's Made in Brooklyn! ;)

You're welcome RoRo. I've used Checklist twice and never had an issue. Very reasonable.

Combo Bagel King Consciously Couples

Bucking the trend sparked by Gweneth Paltro and Chris Martin's conscious uncoupling, +Scot Rossillo   at The Bagel store consciously coupled cinnamon roll and bagel to create the Cinnagel. Since the power couple's sour announcement troubled couples throughout the world are asking themselves where's the love? They can find that love in a twist on a favorite pastry with no mess or sticky fingers. In an intimate moment the World's Premier Bagel Artist confided his love of cinnamon rolls, but in his heart of hearts bakes a bagel. "Traditional cinnamon rolls are sweet and sticky and not great with spreads or as breakfast sandwich," says Scot. Rather than climb any mountain or swim any sea, Scot reverse engineered the cinnamon roll and brought it together with the bagel in a way that has never been done before. The Cinnagel resembles a cinnamon roll, but lovingly embraces any spread and may be consumed without a full body bib or falling into a diabetic coma. The Cinnagel has been getting lots of love, topping the reception of another of Scot's famous creations - the Cragel.

After America On Wheels, we zipped over to the Mack Truck Museum also in Allentown. The brothers Mack incorporated in 1900 in Brooklyn, NY. In fact, Mack Trucks HQ were in NYC until 1970. Their first successful vehicle was a tour bus that toured Prospect Park! The bus was later converted into the first Mack Truck. Mack Trucks are Made in USA in Macungie, PA. You see them on the highway and in your neighborhood - UPS and NYC sanitation trucks are likely made by Mack Trucks.

If Bensonhurst, Brooklyn were a city it would be the cleanest in the United States. In an experiment that began five years ago when Community Board 11 successfully lobbied for the removal of public trash cans, residents learned that garbage tossed into the street magically disappears. While Portland, Oregon has a spotless reputation as one of the cleanest cities in America, its inhabitants continue to find public waste receptacles to be useful and even necessary. Bensonhurst, with a population 17 times as dense, produces no trash whatsoever rendering the receptacles obsolete. 

Guests on a recent Made in BENSONHURST Tour were surprised to discover debris swirling on the sidewalks and streets organically melting into the atmosphere. When Recycle-A-Bicycle attempted to open a shop on 18th Avenue, they packed up and left after observing forlorn bicycles chained to street signs miraculously recycle themselves. New Yorker Neil de Grasse Tyson, famed astrophysicist and host of Cosmos, theorizes that matter pelting Bensonhurst residents on windy days is the residue of billions and billions of sub-atomic reactions occurring in an undiscovered dimension. 

Most Bensonhurstians don't really care why the Department of Sanitation doesn't serve their neighborhood, but all rejoice in the distinction of being the cleanest neighborhood on the planet.

I was in the market for an affordable watch Made in Brooklyn or at least Made in America. After an exhaustive search, I contacted Joseph Wein at Hampden Watch, president of a 3rd generation family business. The Hampden brand dates to the 1870s and was acquired back in 1922. Today Hampden Watch is the oldest watch assembler in the USA.  Joe and I agreed that the watchmakers - the people behind the company - are as important as the watches. So, here's to who's makin' it in Chicago! Thanks Gladys for excellent customer service! www.hampdenwatch.com

This just in. Dom Gervasi is American. Often asked at the start of his tours about his birthplace, Dom felt compelled to publicly announce that he is really Made in Brooklyn - which is in the United States. Though his parents did emigrate from Italy and his last name does end in a vowel, Mr. Gervasi explained that he's "as American as pizza pie." Dom chooses to eschew a red, white and blue tattoo on his butt, confident in his innate American-ness. While it's common to ask, "Where you from?" in Brooklyn, when tested by out-of-towners Mr. Gervasi stands tall and crows that he's ''Merican!" while thumping his chest. It's hard to argue as he enjoys a classic American style cone wrapped in stars and stripes at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory a short walk away from views of the the Statue of Liberty.

Guests Kelly and Michael asked about the coincidence of John and Jay Streets in DUMBO. According to Brooklyn by Name by Leonard Benardo, John Street is likely named after shipbuilder John Jackson. The Federal Government bought his shipyard in 1801. It would become today's Brooklyn Navy Yard. The Canton was the first merchant ship built at Jackson's yard, reflecting the significance of trade with China through today's Port of Guangzhou. Jay Street is named after John Jay who played a significant role in early US history especially in New York State.

See who's makin' it in Brooklyn!
Introduction
Dom Gervasi, the owner and producer of Made in Brooklyn Tours, is a native Brooklynite with extensive experience working for hi-tech producers. Over three years ago, Dom decided to champion a cause near to his heart by forming Made in Brooklyn Tours. His mission is to promote the Made in Brooklyn brand with fun and engaging neighborhood tours and special events that honor Brooklyn's industrial heritage and celebrate Brooklyn's growing "maker movement".

Made in Brooklyn Tours
Made in Brooklyn Tours are neighborhood walking tours with a Made in Brooklyn theme. They tell the story of Brooklyn's rich manufacturing heritage and today's thriving "maker movement". On Made in Brooklyn Tours the stars of the show are the makers. The tours are designed for adults in small to mid-sized groups for an especially good time together and move at a leisurely pace. No two tours are alike. Get to know the captains of industry who made it here and celebrate the creativity, ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit of the Brooklynites makin' it today!

Environmental Policy
Made in Brooklyn Tours is dedicated to offering tours and special events that minimally impact the environment. We achieve this by:

- providing walking tours for small to mid-sized groups that, by their very nature, don't pollute the environment or cause congestion.
- prohibiting the use of noise polluting sound reproduction systems.
- encouraging guests to take transportation alternatives like bicycle and ferry to and from our tours to minimize air pollution and congestion.

Charitable Giving
Made in Brooklyn Tours donates at least 5% net profits to Brooklyn based charitable organizations that offer job training, employment opportunities or assistance with career advancement.
