Brooklyn v. Manhattan, Round 3,829,416
by Liz Colville
“I actually like the fact that much of Brooklyn is not open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But there are times (mainly when I can’t sleep) that I gaze across to the shining island of shininess and wish it delivered. Also, hospitals, gah. There’s a reason they call it “Woodhell,” people. My wife (born in Manhattan, lived in Brooklyn for 15 years) has told me she would actually rather die than go to Woodhull.” — Hey, I lived there happily for five years, but I see Jonny Diamond of The L Magazine’s five points on Brooklyn’s inferiority to Manhattan. Also, I almost wrote Jason Diamond, who was a plastic surgeon on Dr. 90210. Different guy, different guy.
