However, because it was shot in Brooklyn, I’m still fascinated by it, which is why I watched the first episode (available on Hulu) and noted 14 things that 11223 taught me.
#1. It’s totally acceptable to follow your friend down the street wearing a bathing suit, even if the friend you are following tells you to “stay the fuck down the block.”
#2. Everyone has a crew.
#3. There’s floating text — complete with asterisks — above Brooklyn streets.
#4. All toasts must include the word “bitches.”
#5. And all shirts must also include the word “bitches.”
#6. The only worthwhile Brooklyn tracking shots are of bridges. Just...bridges, again and again.
#7. All important, heart-to-heart discussions occur on Jet Skis.
#8. This is “The Spot,” whatever that means.
#9. People actually say, “OHHHHHHH.” Often followed by, “I know you didn’t just say that.”
#10. A typical Bay Ridge girl has a “nasty tongue on her, but what she really is a good girl.”
#11. But a Bay Ridge girl isn’t to be confused with an Italian girl from Brooklyn, who has “no problem fucking somebody up.”
#12. Fat Rocco runs the joint, because his name is Fat Rocco.
#13. There’s never a wrong time to slip on an Ahmad Bradshaw jersey, head down to the local grocer, and ride the mechanical horse for a few hours, even if you’re a twentysomething female.
#14. And lastly, this is what a Brooklyn attendee of a strip clubs looks like.
