Great article. Here is an article on some of the most interesting things to see in NYC right now:
I just found out I got my global internships I applied for a few weeks ago! I was so ecstatic to hear about this great news! If any of you out there has applied and not received an opportunity yet, don't give up!
"This doesn't sound like a list compiled by Brooklyn natives"
And yet it was! So...
"what the fuck is south brooklyn."
R U A TRANSPLNT?
"[Who] Cares about 'funky' boutiques and bad art."
The readers of this magazine!
"I live in the decidedly non-hip world of bay ridge, which i adore from the center of my soul"
Given all the cranky comments here, I marvel that anyone bothers to write anything at all anymore! Yeah, it's totally a hipster point of view (I live in the decidedly non-hip world of bay ridge, which i adore from the center of my soul) and it could benefit from a little more diversity awareness (fyi - I live in the non-hip bay ridge with my beautiful Jamaican husband and our son - one of probably two multi-racial families out here), but I thought it was a FUN read! Chill out, people, and contribute to the conversation by writing your own articles ~ unless you're afraid of the haters, of course. :-)
I've noticed this magazine only really covers the 'cool' parts of Brooklyn, but I'm sorry - being born and raised in Coney Island, you are missing out on entire neighborhoods filled with real diversity and culture.

EAST. FUCKING. NEW. YORK.
ZERO 'HIPSTER' QUOTIENT. ASSUMING YOU WANT THE REAL BROOKLYN, or what's left of it.

I was bout to say the same thing. I'd probably add "the 13 Most Livable Neighborhoods in Brooklyn for white hipsters or gentrifiers", which the editors of this list are -- white and/or hipsters and/or gentrifiers and or trustfunders...
And as wmsgreggs1431 said, not compiled by Brooklyn natives, or New York City natives at all...
Solid anecdote about your friend from the Soviet Union.
what the fuck is south brooklyn. it has the carroll gardens park and smith st...uhhh isn't that just like the BLOCK or so in between carroll gardens and boerum hill? bonus points for including ditmas though!
This doesn't sound like a list compiled by Brooklyn natives.

This is idiotic
This list seems slightly bias!!!!
"South Brooklyn" is a common historical term; we didn't make it up.
Also, many of these neighborhoods have sizable populations of people of color, including the number-one neighborhood.
I love and live in red hook. LOVE RED HOOK. but there is so much crime and shooting and projects and drugs and gangs here, it would be remiss of me to point out what a disservice this article is doing by by saying it's one of the 'most livable neighborhoods in brooklyn' it's really not. nice place to visit, go to ikea and then get a taco and then go back to somewhere even marginally safer. I'm not even exagerrating, a cop just shot and killed someone on the corner I walk across every day, this past thursday night..a guy soliciting an undercover prostitute. this comment will probably be removed, so all I'm saying is...please be more 'accurate' with your 'lists'.
Fort Greene and Clinton Hill have always been great. Take a look at Nelson George's film "Brooklyn Boheme"! Cool has been here not the "new" hipsters.
Why would you not factor safety/crime into this list?
There are, like 15 neighborhoods further south than BoCoCa (sorry for the acronym)- how is that considered South Brooklyn? Poor choice.
I guess the title should really have been "Ranking the 13 Most Livable Neighborhoods for White Folks in Brooklyn," right? You could have saved me the bother of reading this...
