Tale of the Tweets: Streisand Comes Home to Brooklyn for Concerts at Barclays Center

October 14, 2012

Brooklynites of a certain age are kvelling this weekend as Barbra Streisand, Erasmus Hall’s favorite alum (with apologies to Neil Diamond, natch) plays a two night stand at the brand spaking new Barclays Center. Some of her classmates were on hand as well as Atlantic Yards Report’s Norman Oder who was making doubly sure traffic in the area was running smoothly.

The Daily News’ Jim Farber writes, “In her very first number, Streisand fiddled liberally with the lyrics of “As If We Never Said Goodbye,” adding shout outs to Erasmus High, her old yeshiva, and salty lox.”

Check out all in action in our the Tale of the Tweets after the jump.
