Best of Brooklyn

Brooklyn. The name conjures up a host of associations: Coney Island. The Brooklyn Dodgers. Churches. Brownstones. Strong neighborhoods. Friendly, gruff, energetic people.

This year, the Irish Echo will shine a spotlight on the Irish Americans who were shaped by their association with Brooklyn: native Brooklynites, those who moved to the borough, and those who contributed to its quality of life there. We’ll be honoring not only the notable figures of today, but also of yesteryear. And we’re asking our readers to join us in suggesting honorees for this unique tribute, which will be published in the April 28, 2010 issue.

Tell us why YOU are the Best of Brooklyn by filling in the form below. Don’t be shy — Brooklynites are famous for telling it like it is! Or if you know a native of Brooklyn who deserves recognition, send us that person’s name, background and contact details. You can fill out the form below, or visit www.irishecho.com, click on the “Best of Brooklyn” link on the homepage, and fill out the nomination form online.

Please complete all fields. We cannot process the nomination without contact information for both the nominee and the person sending in the nomination.
