Big Real Estate Firm Refers to a Third of Borough as "Other Brooklyn"

Some readers were annoyed with me recently for suggesting that certain neighborhoods, particularly the subdivisions of Flatbush, were too small to be officially considered proper individual communities. But, hey, at least I didn't do what real estate big Corcoran does in its map of Brooklyn, which is to consider almost everything east of Bed-Stuy/Crown Heights/Flatbush/Midwood—roughly, what, a third of the borough?—to be "Other Brooklyn." That's right, forget about Fiske Terrace. Brownsville, East New York, Flatlands, Canarsie, Cypress Hills, Marine Park and Bergen Beach (even Bushwick!), you're not neighborhoods anymore—just a big gray lump of real-estate etcetera.
