Barbra Back in Brooklyn?

A suggested setlist for her potential triumphant homecoming

Print Email
Barbra Streisand.(Wikipedia)

Rumor has it that when the Barclays Center opens in the fall, among the things it will host (in addition to a Jay-Z show and the Brooklyn Nets’ home games) will be a concert by Flatbush’s favorite daughter. With that in mind, here is a suggested, borough-appropriate setlist, provided by Tablet Magazine editor-in-chief Alana Newhouse; publisher Jesse Oxfeld; and executive editor Wayne Hoffman—all of whom, I can’t help but add, have (different) pictures of Babs hanging in their offices.

• “Hello, Deli.”

• “Marty, Can You Hear Me?

• “I Found a Million Dollar Baby (in Park Slope)”

• “(Misty Watercolored Mem’ries of) The Low-Rise Residential Neighborhood That Used to Be Here”

• “The Goy Next Door”

• “You Don’t Bring Me Artisanal Flowers”

• “Hipster Gays Are Here Again”

• “Don’t Rain on My Mermaid Parade”

• “Vintage-Store Rose”
