Too fast, too furious? lol
If this piece was supposed to have humor, I missed something. It's a damn Pixar movie. Dramatic Structure 101 - conflict between the protagonist and the antagonist unravels, with the protagonist winning or losing against the antagonist. The falling action typically containing a moment of final suspense, in which the final outcome of the conflict is in doubt. Sadly your article's analysis is skewed. How about writing us something entertaining. A high brow piece about, say how hipsters have aggressive emotional unavailability and that their lifestyle reveals a subtle sadness suffused by their ironically poor taste in clothing.
Hey thoughtful article but you sure dug deep to get this out of it.. My daughter didnt excel at soccer. She loved to play but she realized it wasnt for her and so she stopped but she stopped at peace with the decision and moved on to something she could be better at. I kind of disagree with your premise.. Sometimes you have to know what your good at and when to hand in the towel at something your not,
I'm a Kensington resident thinking 'this is the call to arms I'd hoped for'. If articles like this mean the neighborhood gets nicer to live in, that's fine with me.
It's also somewhat hypocritical Virginia that the entire existence of the L Magazine was facilitated by the gentrification of Williamsburg, so it was all nice and funky when you moved to Brooklyn a few years ago from Ohio. Surprised this simple irony escaped you.
So, come to Kensington, it's not perfect by any means but there are some huge houses with real potential for the same cost as a shitty 2 bed in other areas of brooklyn.
The residential highway block is 17th street between 6th and 7th avenue. Not 4th and 5th.
you asshole hipsters need to go back from where you came from. all this was here long before you got here and will be here long after you are hopefully gone. by the way tennis court is not a pun, one of the oldest tennis clubs sits right on the side of the large apartment building at the end of the street.
Geographically,South Brooklyn would be the southern most part of Brooklyn which would be The Verrazano Bridge located in Bay Ridge..Check your maps!!..
Hi-larious and poignant
Oh my, what a wanker !!! Sorry world, I feel I have to apologise for my fellow Northern Irish TWAT.
"Tourists, like neo-liberals, are all for doing more with less......Parsimonious traveler that I am, New York’s vertiginous hotel prices long kept me away".
F$%£ Me, in the first paragraph I already know you're an absolute dickhead. It's a review of a free accommodation experience your writing, not of a Dostoevsky novel.
OK, you've had a bad experience but, in fairness, you don't sound like the type of person who should have been there in the first place. Try using your 'big words' for something a bit more useful...like talking your girlfriend into staying with you after cheaping out on a trip to New York...lol
I guess I'm surprised Lisa Cooley didn't ream you out for categorizing her as a middle tier gallery. Pretty heady stuff from that white cube.
Yes, you heard right. The Jefferson L stop is the most dangerous stop in Brooklyn. And, of course, you also know that Brooklyn is the most dangerous place in the Western Hemisphere. Seriously.. Troutman Street? Almost everyone I know, men and women, that was foolish enough to walk around Troutman St was raped and murdered there. Is the mac and cheese worth YOUR LIFE? It's much safer in NJ, Long Island or Ohio. Save yourself.

She is a lovely young lady. Surprised by her humble living quarters.
Not the worst . . . but not the brightest either. At least everybody in the building knows where NOT to grow their weed.
Anyone have any photos of the Tuxedo Theater at Ocean Parkway and Brighton Beach Ave. which existed probably from mid 1920's to 1964, when it became a lowly parking lot for a Trump Village building just north of its oldl position?
You need to stop seeing him. The problem isn't him, its you: you are a masochist with low self-esteem. Break up with him and start dating people that are available.
This is an awesome article thank you; I'd also like to add AMC bay plaza in the bronx, there are two sides so as long as your movie is on the same side there's no one to stop you, plus unless its the weekend there is usually no ticket checker on the opposite side either.

Uh, The Science of Sleep was awesome.
