@The Truth: Sorry, kiddo, if you think Manahatta is the living end, you haven't been here long (or perhaps you're just terribly impressionable). As a Manhattan-born expat, the island was happening about two decades ago. Brooklyn stole that thunder a while back, but I cringe at the encroaching Manhattanization going on here.
People, you are Funny and very, very critical! I say love it all and it is a must to work towards making every area of NY a better place, having Brooklyn being one of them! Chill with Love!
fortgreen clinton hills, is a zoo.
Changes are happening don't know if it's for the best, but one thing I will always have in my memories is growing up there in the 1950s and 1960s where the neighborhood was like a family. But with these changes it will never be the same.
bushwick country club is not even in "east williamsburg" its in williamsburg proper. duh
@Blueberry based on what?
@Rufus which 10-year-old new Brooklyn institutions did we miss from southern Brooklyn?
The person who wrote this is probably some transplant from the Midwest.
Wow. Do you guys ever leave North Brooklyn?
maybe people would be more likely to listen to your opinions and read your article if you weren't so cynical? I'm not trying to be rude but the beginning of the article was a major turn off... I agree though, everything we do today, even considering something small like the fork, has an environmental impact. I'm an Environmental and Sustainability Studies major and I was still a little turned off by the front side of this article...
Best names for streets: Force Tube Avenue and Old New Utrecht Avenue
I used to live on India Street between Franklin and Manhattan and got booted out when the building was sold and the apartments were renovated to make condos.
What about Gravesand End? I couldnt get the list.
Wow... yeah Where's Canarsie in this list? We have a pier for kite flying and fishing. We have a beautiful park for baseball and cricket and it has brand new parts to it like a skate area. Whoever decided to make this list really didn't try to go everywhere in this borough...
Please note: et al projects is also located at the 56 Bogart building.
South Brooklyn is what Jo Reynolds posted. Southern Brooklyn is Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Bensonhurst, etc. Those places were not a part of Brooklyn at the time, they were in separate municipalities, hence the difference. The history is there, embrace it rather than change it.
L mag sucks
here's a full list of the neighborhoods represented in this list: Flatbush, Windsor Terrace, Bushwick, Midwood, Cobble Hill, Red Hook, DUMBO, Coney Island, Vinegar Hill, Crown Heights, Brighton Beach, Carroll Gardens, Bay Ridge, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Bensonhurst, Clinton Hill, Park Slope (north and south), Sunset Park, Bed-Stuy, Gravesend, Williamsburg, Gowanus, Fort Greene, Ditmas Park, Greenpoint, Brooklyn Heights
Clearly someone on the editorial staff lives in Bushwick. I feel like 80+% of the neighborhoods in Brooklyn have been ignored here? Lame.
