For Whom the Bell Tolls

Scene: Pacific Avenue N/R train- Coney Island Bound

2 wilted women and 4 children crowd the stairs as we are about step onto the platform. One of the women asks with a deeply southern inflected voice:

"Do y'all know how to get to Whitehall Street or the Statue of Liberty?"

"I'm afraid you missed it."

"But it should be around here, they said it was the last stop in Manhattan on the R."

"Well, actually this is Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn."

"Oh Hell's Bells. We're in Brooklyn?"

"Yes Ma'am. Welcome to Brooklyn!"
