Where My Heart Is

Where My Heart Is




From the Verrazano to the Brooklyn Bridge

Through the Ridge and up the Slope

Diverse personalities in every nook

Streets of Brooklyn are “off the hook”

From Coney Island to the Navy Yard

Local churches, restaurants and museums

Amazing all people from every scene,

So enticing on the movie screens

Schools,sports and entertainment abound

The people of Brooklyn create and astound

Showing the world its undying glory

Brooklyn, oh Brooklyn, you are my life’s story

Leaving your streets to explore other places

Shadows of memories tracing empty spaces in my heart

For here lies the key to my home

Brooklyn, oh Brooklyn from you I cannot part

~Kathy Napoli


I hope you will forgive me, today I felt an overwhelming sense of sadness from the thoughts that I may soon need to leave the borough of my birth.  My present circumstances is making it harder and harder to live here and be financially stable.  Not quite sure about the definite plan as yet, but I know there needs to be one very soon.  How will I ever be able to break my own heart?  Life is not always as we planned nor does change always come with joyful challenges.  For now, though, its just a jumble of thoughts.

And that is the Way I See It here in Brooklyn!

  • Beautiful! I hope you live in Brooklyn all your life. But if you have to leave… Brooklyn will not be the same without you.


  • Gosh, I really liked it. Remember the Verrazano going up & all the bars on 7th Ave. One on every corner almost. Palm Pines, Quigleys, Carlins & that little place on 2nd st. & 7th, forgot the Coach Inn.
    We sure had fun though. I rem. listening to the music going to bed every night in the summer from the Coach & singing along with the singer. You show a lot of talent, I’d take a class & have fun with your writing. Pattie
