My Neighborhood

My Neighborhood by Kjudy using Ript

Six years ago, I came to love my adopted Brooklyn neighborhood through the day to day experiences of my child.

The “men on the corner who blow fire”, the “pig dog”, grocers bearing candy, the diner, and the playground devoid of shade.

Our neighborhood is upscaling rapidly. Something that has improved our lifestyle and ensured we will not live here much longer.

Monday, WNYC had a panel on whether an urban middle class is still possible in the 21st century.

I can’t help but feel my life is a kind of hothouse flower.

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.
