Since we're talking about New York City, isn't "low density compared to Manhattan" enough?

(I thought Brookline was a suburb, BTW.)

I think Brookline is less a suburb a/c the way the Boston MTA is laid out.

same goes for newton

'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Only administratively (like Westmount in Montreal). It's on the green line and is a short walk to downtown (the last fifteen minutes of the Marathon or so pass through Brookline). It's closer to downtown than other parts of the city like Alston/Brighton. Cambridge works here as well.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Newton is a suburb! I always thought of BC as kind of the border. Washington Sq and Coolidge Corner are definitely not "suburbs".

When I used to live off Washington Sq., I didn't think of where I lived as very suburban. But I definitely thought of the area up Cypress St., say, as suburban.

Cypress and Washington is a half-hour walk from Roxbury Crossing! You, with your slanted Broolyn perspective - Brookline is closer to Downtown Boston than Park Slope is to downtown Manhattan and more densely populated than a downtown Toronto neighbourhood like the Annex (see Pilgrim, Scott)!

ETA: also a similar population density to Georgetown.

we appreciate our strip gentlemen's club neighbors out here in queens, i think we'd love the more family friendly hooters.

Different Washington Sq. We're talking about the one in Brookline, Mass.

Isn't that kind of discounting where Batali and Bastianich are coming from? They weren't always "Batali and Bastianich" like that. But Po (of yore) was the exact sort of restaurant that Brooklynites love. I never get the sense that people who have moved to Brooklyn are doing it to escape Michelin stars or quality. In many ways it is a more hyped food scene than NY (Robertas has a RADIO STATION for godsake). Sure, there's a resistance to 'big box' even if that box holds Mario or Bastianich, but it isn't as though there aren't Brooklyn chefs who are growing little empires. They'll be the Batali's and Bastianich's of the future and while you might object...plenty of Brooklynites won't.


Of course, I mean Batali & Bastianich today -- not when they were starting out. That's the point.

(I'm sure you know there's even a branch of Po in Brooklyn. Although it's not a place people talk about much.)


I do know about that branch. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm not sure what it is about Batali and Bastianich that you're suggesting doesn't exist in Brooklyn today...and if what you're referring to doesn't exist today, there's no question that it will exist in 10 years. While YOU might have moved to Brooklyn to avoid that, I doubt that's true for most of the people moving to Brooklyn today...

I actually think it would be quite difficult to put a Hooters in Washington Sq, NYC. There's a big difference in most people's mind btw Subway and Hooters. And Greenwich Village is perfectly capable of throwing a fit.
