the British whupped Washington today in 1776

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Long_Island

the battle took place on what is now the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, a Costco and a very nice new Ikea that just opened recently. and there is a big Hassidic Jewish neighborhood where i bought most of my kitchen 6 years ago

the british landed near some government housing projects built by Donald Trump's father and marched along what seems to be King's Highway. The street is still there with the same name.
