Re: “After Crime Wave, Greenpoint Residents May Form A Neighborhood Watch

What would be more effective would be actual beat cops walking the streets both in Williamsburg and Greenpoint. There are more and more bars opening up and with the proximity of the halfway house it's no wonder there is an increase in violent crime.

Re: “Neighborhood Power Ranking: Parenting Edition

Wait, where's Greenpoint? It has the access to great bars and restaurants and parks, etc. The down side is Girls is filmed their every other week (it feels like).

Re: “Hipsters Are Wrong and G Train Service Is Pretty Great, Says Actual Data

No! I want everyone to keep on hating the G. I don't want my rent in Greenpoint to go up!

Re: “Here is How to Tweet About Girls This Weekend

I have to preface this with the disclaimer that I don't watch 'Girls', mostly because I am an awkward 20-something female in Greenpoint and I don't feel the need to watch a show about other awkward 20-somethings living in Greenpoint.

But why does a show that happens to take place in BK have to represent ALL of BK? Why does it have to "represent" anything at all? It's a work of (semi) fiction depicting the lives of 4 girls living in NY. I am struggling to understand why anyone thinks it needs to have a greater social meaning. Not being a follower of the show or Lena Dunham, I don't know if anyone from the show claims it is supposed to or not. But unless it's a show by Aaron Sorkin (man, who doesn't wish Will McAvoy was really on the air?) I usually don't expect anything from a television show other than some entertainment. Again, that's just me (except the thing about The Newsroom...I think most of us can get behind that).
