Well Paddy Johnson has gone from hawking grad matter from Columbia down to the undergraduate level. If any of these lightweights will be remembered in 6 mos. ...
You should have tried to network with others on the site in NY and spend the day with different people. There are tons of couch surfing parties in NY and even though some many not be able to host, they will offer to show you around. So, not sure why you found yourself bored trying to kill time.
As far as your hosts are concerned you probably just caught them at a bad time. Also you are staying for free in their place, so you can't expect a comfy bed or couch all the time. I always go out of my way for my hosts. Taking out the trash and cleaning should be voluntary before you hit the sack. Also, you should have talked to them as to what time you needed to wake in the morning. It's mostly your responsibility to find out all the info you need from them.
Keys are also not always given, at least for most hosts in America. People have given me keys in other countries though. They seem to be more trusting.

Watch all the haters come out.
Can't tell which is more jaded: the featured works or the comments people make about them.
Good stuff looks weird; bad stuff looks the same :p
The only worthwhile art that is coming out of Brooklyn are by graphic designers and small record labels; fuck contemporary art.
Was allll of this art made by opening ceremony?? Seems like they were so worried about it looking like they care or contrived, they instead went the polar opposite and made some bored looking junk. This has all been done, there's a good reason nobody remembers.
You can only enjoy anal if you want it. If you're ho-hum, it'll feel like you're shitting backwards and it will look like it too. If you want it, there is no sexy-pain, no pain-pain, and best of all, no nuggets of surprise. And only use oil based lube, not water-based. You want that hole greasy. And please people, rim that butt, smack it hard, and tease it before you boink "the forbidden fruit". It's the only way to get it primed for slamming, which you'll ask for. And yes, it's fucking amazing. Your eyes will cross. You will make noises like a farm animal.
Best art coverage yet. Love these.
Roberta's didn't "single-handedly" transform the Morgan stop you goddamn fool. Shit was there for years before they opened. You're a clown.
Wow some of the shittiest fake-talented clown garbage I've seen in a while, and all in one place. Thank you Brooklyn artists under 30.
I grew up in Brooklyn and moved away 20 years ago. I go back and visit every year to see family and immerse in nostalgia. I found it funny that the neighborhoods that are so livable were among the most crime ridden ones back then.
However I do agree that you list the hipster neighborhoods and miss out on so much of the areas that made and still make Brooklyn. Sheepshead Bay, Brighton Beach, Gravesend, Coney Island. Manhattan Beach , 86th street, etc.. Each of these have their local immigrant communities, bars, local ethnic restaurant. Each generation brings a new wave with their own language, food, stores, and customs. This is the DNA of Brooklyn.
Soon enough when the cooler neighborhoods rents have risen thru the roof and the hipsters have fled to newer grounds, Brooklyn will still remain Brooklyn/
I want to try it but I'm to scared to cn anyone help me?

I take issue with the Juice Box as the best wine store in Brooklyn. It's alright, but the customer service is lackluster. I vote for TB Ackerson in Ditmas Park for best wine store. And Trader Joe's - although a nice grocery store for what it's worth - does not hold a candle to the Red Hook Fairway. Trader Joe's selection of produce is very limited and they are quite heavy on the frozen foods. Plus, there is absolutely no where to park near Trader Joe's, whereas Fairway has parking and shuttle service (in groups of 10 I think) for those who don't drive. And who doesn't love a grocery store with views of the NY harbor and the Statue of Liberty? Believe me, Fairway is worth the trip. In the summer, you can pick up a taco at the ball fields on your way home.
I have to say I'm very snobby about where I buy my kids stuff. I'm not a Mom but have an insane amount of nieces, nephews & friends babies I frequently buy for. The way I see it, if I'm gonna spend the money it needs to be incredibly cute (so I can impress the parents) & also cool enough for the kid too. I also love to buy "Brooklyn" merchandise to support my neighborhood & the one store I can say is THE BEST Kids store in Williamsburg, if not all of Brooklyn is Cute Attack on Graham Ave. This store should've at least gotten an honorable mention-come on!
Why are Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens listed as the generic sounding South Brooklyn? They're not even that far south!
DijitalFix is a Giant rip off, I'd prefer Mikey's HookUp with real prices and far less pretense.
