Is Brooklyn For Losers?
Our favorite outrageous reporter (and heavy Gawker fodder), Andrea Peyser of the New York Post, has incited another mini-debate with her op-ed exploring Brooklyn's alleged "inferiority complex." "Brooklyn is for losers," begins Peyser, citing a series of signs put up in Brooklyn making fun of the borough, as well as a quote from her friend Meryl, who claims it's "better to suffer and struggle in Soho than Bensonhurst." Peyser even references former Brooklyn resident Heath Ledger, who "chose to die in Manhattan." And with Gawker insisting the Brooklyn-trend stories officially have to stop, we've got to ask, in the Manhattan vs. Brooklyn culture wars, who's right and who's wrong?
