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...
I'm just glad Bed-Stuy was left off the list. Although it's already gentrified, I don't want it to get more so. Stay in Fort Greene, Clinton Hill and Crown Heights...Please & thanks...
Again with the lists? I guess you have data that show your readers love pointless arbitrary lists. Ten this. Thirteen that. Five of those. Seven of these. It was cute at the beginning but now it's ripe for parody and getting annoying. And now you write about OTHER magazines' lists. Maybe you could skip the lists for a while? Or is that all your readers care about? I guess you know your demographics, but this makes me think your readers must be dullards. How about the five most moronic lists The L Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine have published?
Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill are all included as "South Brooklyn," near the top.
Is this a joke? You have Red Hook, Bushwick and Windsor Terrace but not Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill?
This sums up the entire borough.
uh, where's number 12
Hipsters Don't Exist! so these high-end items must be for yuppies or guppies or something
If youve only fucked once on you ass n its been over a yr will it be tight again for my second time?
There are some responsibilities that tie the host too, it's not opening your door to strangers and then treating them as garbage when they arrive.. maybe it's a hipster thing? .. the hosts are usually assumed to be interested in their guests, that's why they're inviting them over. It's not about just sleeping on a different couch than your own for a night! :) Getting to know new interesting people is essential part of CouchSurfing. Those were BAD, BAD hosts from hell, and they shouldn't be hosting at all if they can't not argue in the middle of the night when they have company.
That's ridiculous, when you have guests you focus on them..naturally. I thought that would be self-evident to other ppl as well?
Although there's no money exchange, there's still things that are customary, like conversation with guests, cooking with them, showing them around town and overall taking care of them..making them feel welcome. That's what GOOD hosts do.
I hope he didn't give them positive feedback after a weekend of scared sneaking around and not feeling welcome at all.
i like your allusion to raymond carver. great article!!
A suggestion for a new category. "Greenest Street." My nomination is for
Haring Street between Voorhies and Avenue Z. Look at how green that street is!
Lena looks so beautiful in that yellow photo in the middle!
Rabbi Aron Teitelbaum and Lincoln Restler a lasting friendship.
Lincoln Restler a tireless advocate for the entire community has fought for many years for the Satmar group under the leadership of the great Rabbi Aron Teitelbaum.
Vote Restler so he will continue to fight on Rabbi Aron Teitelbaums behalf.
A vote for Restler is a vote for Rabbi Aron Teitelbaum of Satmar.
Here is my personal take on Mr. Restler:
I met him for the first time a few weeks ago.
In the heat and humidity of a particularly harsh New York City summer, Lincoln was walking from house to house, from block to block, day after day - meeting the people of our Brooklyn community.... talking to them about their concerns and their problems, ... asking them what needed to be maintained, and what needed to be improved.
I was impressed: this kind of dedication and hands-on effort is rare among aspiring politicians. Usually when they're running for something you might find them standing at a subway stop for a half-hour, handing out a few leaflets - IF you're lucky.
I was even more impressed when I checked the web and found that Lincoln Restler's position was unsalaried!
Mr. Restler has my support in Thursday's election for Democratic State Committee....because Brooklyn needs more people politics - and less machine politics.
By the way: That's NOT his photo!!!

To see how Occupy Wall Street really started and what they believed in at the beginning, read chapter 2 of my firsthand account as a bank whistleblower uncovering the largest bank fraud in history here: http://thoughtforyourpenny.blogspot.com/2012/03/boy-who-cried-force-placed-insurance_02.html
My mind is officially blown. I read the original article and then the follow up comments. What am I to think?
First Margaret Mak's piece first appeared in February 2010, so from my POV, that's 2 years and 8 months old. Which is ancient history for this scene. However, to her credit, the webpages for Chemistry, School of Sex, and One Leg Up are all still working. But the sites that have a myspace page? Well that's a big red flag right there, even back in 2010.
So, let's face it. We're probably overdue to have a new survey of what's going on now.
But the responses from readers are curious.
Let's be completely honest here. New York, for all of its reputation as a sexy city, really doesn't have a lot of choices for party play with heteros in this area. Maybe it doesn't really need a lot, because there are endless possibilities for personal encounters, from nightclubs to the subway at rush hour. But I'm sure other cities with lower profiles and less policing are probably a better choice for this sort of action, since there are a lot of issues about needing to move these parties to various locations. And a lot of corruption with payoffs needed to... the mob? the police? Both? To ensure everything is okay.
I suspect there's a kernel of truth to everything the people who responded said. These clubs are probably not nearly as cool or as nice as described. But most of us would never know because we'll never go, or we'll apply and not get accepted to join. This is, after all, just an article to read... an entertaining piece about a life to which we aren't a part.
I guess the final thought I have is that if you can read about particular parties and the people that throw them, they aren't the place to be anymore. If you really want to find the nirvana of a bacchanalian orgy, it's probably best to be your own private dick.
