I will post more photos soon--I am compiling images from my neighborhood for a Brooklyn Centre bicentennial celebration 1812-2012.  The little girl above may not appreciate the significance of Independence Day until she is older--her family emigrated from Burundi.  It has been very typical for new Americans to arrive via the Brooklyn Centre neighborhood.
