Barbara Streisand.

NY Times – They may not be the luckiest people in the world, but Brooklyn people who want to see Barbra Streisand struck a jackpot of sorts Wednesday: the singer confirmed that she is returning to her home turf, to perform for the first time since she graduated from Erasmus Hall High School as a fiercely ambitious teenager and became, well, Barbra Streisand.

“Brooklyn to me means the Loew’s Kings, Erasmus, the yeshiva I went to, the Dodgers, Prospect Park, great Chinese food,” Ms. Streisand said in a statement announcing the concert, which is set for October 11. “I’m so glad I came from Brooklyn — it’s down to earth. I guess you can come home again.”
