The NYT Thinks Brooklyn is Everywhere, Everywhere is Brooklyn

New, 1 comment

So you don't live in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Are you sure about that? If you live in Oakland, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Berlin, parts of Beijing, the entire Hudson Valley, all of the Hamptons west of the of the Shinnecock Canal, and the area between Brooklyn and Queens painfully referred to as "Quooklyn," the New York Times has a message for you: you actually live in Brooklyn, or something so similar to it the distinction is negligible. Because Brooklyn is more than a borough. It's more than even "a euphemism for a kind of urbanism that millennials like," as The Atlantic's Bourree Lam, who compiled this great and terrible list, recently put it. Brooklyn is all.
