Given that my signature drink to order happens to be the apparently-dreaded LIIT, I'd wager that the *real* reason these guys and gals revile it is that, put bluntly, half of them wouldn't know how the Dickens to make a proper one. When I ask for one, and either get a weird look (as if I'd just made a lurid proposition), or see her/him reach nervously for some dog-eared notebook, I hold up my hand and switch to a G&T. Really, guys, I'm not here for coolness points - I just want a drink.
Bartender #4 has no name or bar....?
i host many couchsurfers and rarely give keys or let people stay while im at work. get real Peter Geoghegan.sometimes i have time off as i am a commercial fisherman and tree cutter so i have the luxury of being able to show my guest the area, but to arrive with the attitude that your article implies, is ridiculous indeed. as a frequent host and an occasional guest i think you sound like someone i would possibly invite to keep on your merry way after the second night. couchsurfing is not a hotel, hostel, resort, or welfare program. pitch in, make conversation, food, bring drinks, ask questions, etcetera.... if you don't like where your at do some typing and find another host. doubt your old lady will be around next time as she has probably realized you are an inadequate planner as well as a whiner and a self entitled kook.
@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.
