The person who wrote this is probably some transplant from the Midwest.

Re: “The Life of a Plastic Fork

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...

Re: “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

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.

Re: “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

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...

Re: “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

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.

Re: “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

Clearly someone on the editorial staff lives in Bushwick. I feel like 80+% of the neighborhoods in Brooklyn have been ignored here? Lame.

Re: “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

Jo Reynolds is absolutely right about Smith Street being in South Brooklyn. No Brooklynite worth his/her salt would confuse South and Southern Brooklyn--confusing, but a very Brooklyn thing; like South Midwood being north of Midwood :-)

Re: “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

I'm glad that my neighborhood (PLG) rated two blocks here. but FWIW, the photograph of the Flatbush--Ocean block of Lincoln Road was actually taken around the corner, on Flatbush Ave., evidence perhaps of "gentrification" spreading out. The photo DOE'S capture the spirit of Lincoln Road.

Re: “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

It's Sherman Street, not Sherman Place. Not really worth reading any further given the author's ignorance.

Re: “The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

Keyword being "used to be". Whenever someone says South Brooklyn to me, I think Bensonhurst, Sheepshead Bay, Brighton Beach, Gravesend, Coney Island, etc. It was an interesting article, didn't agree with all of them, but interesting nevertheless.
