Born in Brooklyn with Pride: Larry David

Updated on October 10, 2018

Larry David hails from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. He is likely best known as a co-creator of "Seinfeld." which is one of the all-time great TV comedy series that ran from 1989-1998.

David has been on TV doing comedy since the 1980s when he appeared in 54 episodes of "Fridays" from 1980-1982. David was also a writer for the show. Michael Richards (a.k.a. Kramer of Seinfeld) was a cast member of Fridays.

In 2000 he created "Curb Your Enthusiasim" a HBO comedy series in which he stars as himself. In 2017 after a 6-year hiatus, the show is back on HBO. There will also be a 10th season.

David appeared in 7 episodes often on "Saturday Night Life" from 2015-2017 playing former presidential candidate and politician, Bernie Sanderson

The Brooklyn-born comedy stars list is long and includes: Jackie Gleason, Danny Kaye, Moe & Curly of the Three Stoges, Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon to name a few.

Brooklyn sports legends include: Vince Lombardi, Vinnie Testaverde, Phil Rizzuto, Tommy Davis, Connie Hawkins, Chris Mullin, Carmelo Anthony, Mike Tyson and Michael Jordan to name a few.

Though I was a proud Manhattan resident for 12 years, I was equally as proud to say I was born in Brooklyn. I lived in Brooklyn for the first seven years of my life in the Avenue J section near Brooklyn College and later in the Sunset Park (53rd St. & 6th Avenue).

I attended PS 94 and remember as a kid going to Sunset Park with my mother and little cousins to cool off in their large water sprinkler version of a pool. It was how us city kids survived the hot summers. As a teenager, I spent three summers at my Uncle's house in Gerritsen Beach. As an adult, I worked at the Brooklyn Army Terminal for three years.

Who would have imagined the two family house my grandparents bought in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn for $11,000 in 1940’s would eventually sell for $2,525,000.

No matter who I meet or work with, there’s never any hesitation when asked; Where were you born? I say Brooklyn with pride.
