Re: Brooklyn Street name #usa

Brooklyn has or had its own way of speaking.  Sort of Brooklyneese.  For example the word "oil" was pronounced like the name "Earl" and the word "Birds" was pronounced "Boids" or "Boyds".  So following this thought, I tried to find a "Bird" or "Byrd" street.  Unfortunately I did not find either, although there is a "Byrd St" in the Flushing area of Queens.
Ah, well
