I met Tommy Rebel back in 2006 and he was extremely welcoming and encouraged me to come stay at his house in Bayridge. If you know Tommy he's someone that will not take no for answer; 12 hours later I was Brooklyn Bound. One of my first ever real trips to New York City. I experienced many things that I didn't know existed. Sneaker shopping at mom and pop shops, pizza and many other random activities. Those were the days.
