ComeBack Kid

Happy President's Day! Most Brooklynites know that the Patriots under General George Washington lost the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776. What we know today as New York City was occupied by the British for the entire Revolutionary War. After the war Washington - the original "Comeback Kid" - returned to Bensonhurst as president to lunch at Barre's tavern. I don't think he slept here. ;)
