UPDATE(2):Girl with a Wrench- A New Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Yep, that’s my kid. Her business opened last August on the New Front, the Bushwick Brooklyn Gentrification, USA Front

I’d like to thank James Hodges’ lovely blog on my girl, Woman in Charge for recognizing yet another Tree is Growing in Brooklyn

UPDATE: From a GLBT website review

Chicks, Bikes and Brooklyn: A Woman-Owned Bike Shop in a Changing Neighborhood
Posted by: Sarah Pappalardo | 01.15.2009 | comment feed
As I pet two curled-up, matching black cats, KT Higgins gets up to grab the ringing phone that sits in a pile of bike tools and unopened gear. “Bike Shop,” she says, and answers a few questions before sitting down with the cats and me.
In its six months of existence, this unassuming building on DeKalb Avenue has been called “Brooklyn Bikes,” “Bike Shop” and, most recently, “Velo Bikes.” With nothing but a hanging canvas sign to mark its place, this one-room, woman-owned bike shop is evolving as rapidly as the neighborhood it occupies….more…

Girl power rolls on 🙂

Update2 h/t to Sarah and my favorite Brooklyn website!

…and KT’s a movie star too 🙂 Appearing at about :54 before she gets hit by the cab…she’s fine!
