Year after year, I am amazed at how my borough Brooklyn (Bklyn) the largest borough of New York, keeps on transforming. Although some entertainment stars have always lived there (movie producers, comedians, actors), stories abound in the media about stars sighting (Madonna, Usher etc...). Vogue recently named Bushwick one of the most stylish neighborhoods in the world. Big named artists such as Jennifer
Lopez, performing at the Fashion Rocks concert at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. An article from New York Observer reported that Madonna has purchased a building there and planned to open a restaurant. In 2011, GQ magazine featured an article naming Brooklyn the Coolest City on the Planet.
