Barbra Streisand was full of Brooklyn pride as she belted out well-known tunes during a concert at the newly built Barclays Centre.
The three-hour show was Barbra's return to her Brooklyn hometown, where she is also performing on Saturday.
The 70-year-old told the crowd of 18,000 the last time she performed solo in Brooklyn was "on somebody's stoop on Pulaski Street" as an eight-year-old.
She played with the crowd, often telling jokes and taking in the many screams of "I love you Barbra!"
She entered the stage in a shimmery black ensemble, holding her hands close to the microphone as she performed songs including People, Evergreen and The Way We Were.
The Funny Girl star sang a duet with her son, Jason Gould, asking the 45-year-old: "Do you need anything, like, a sweater?"
