Between this:

“There’s a hilarious Observer article about the psychological divide between residents of hipper, edgier enclaves like Williamsburg and Greenpoint and those of Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, and Boerum Hill.”

and this:

“Do you live in the Williamsburg Greenpoint area? I know you probably love it. I love it too. But you should be aware of some things. Living here is much like living in a college dorm. It’s a hotbed (no pun intended) of sexually transmitted diseases. But it doesn’t have to be like this.”

…why would you want to live anywhere other than Queens? Time to get past the “How can we be more like Brooklyn?” routine.

    Recently when we were forced to move from our basement apartment in Astoria, the one with the backyard and the low rent (sniffle), we thought, ‘maybe this is for the best, we could try out a different neighborhood and get a change of pace.’
    We looked all over Brooklyn: Greenpoint, Park Slope, Bed Stuy…only to end up back in Astoria. I’m happy with the choice.
