Irene LoRe, Executive Director of the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID and the owner of Aunt Suzie's Restaurant recently sent this message to other merchants, regarding the 4th of July.
Sure, the 4th is over, but her message is a good one to remember:
Happy Fourth Everyone!
I hope you all got to celebrate a day of joy and freedom.
How lucky we are to live in this country. Many of us are close enough to our own immigrant roots to have heard over and over the reasons for coming here.
I love living in NY, I love living in Brooklyn and I love this country. When they play the Star Spangled Banner or God Bless America, you can count on me for a few tears.
God Bless America!
