A box came to Brooklyn

A box came to Brooklyn

Jason Cusato
It's a quiet Sunday morning in an up-and-coming Brooklyn neighborhood. Naive manchild Johnny stumbles upon an anonymous box in the middle of his dead-end block. The other residents of Schenectady Street gather to nervously investigate. What's in it, and who left it? Johnny struggles to convince his ridiculous neighbors that a mysterious box left in the middle of their street doesn't prove one of them is a terrorist.
