We were wondering how many Brookynites stick to the borough other than to visit the Big Island for job purposes (those who still have jobs). Herewith is our GL Poll inspired by our friend Carmen:

    Um, are there any non-snarky options available?!

    RE: The L Train blows and I’m a hipster.

    Isn’t there some rule that you can’t self-identify as a hipster? Unless you hipsterishly do so ironically in which case you might be a crypto-hipster who wouldn’t self-identify as hipster for totally different reasons? Uhhh. The L train sucks

    I’d take the poll, but none of the answers seem right. Yes, I do go into Manhattan for reasons other than work, but rarely. For shopping, to see the occasional band, to meet up with non-Brooklynite friends, sometimes for a date night out with the wife and, of course, to go to the Apple store. Sum total: maybe once a month, twice tops. Brooklyn rules, but there’s no reason to be a snob about it.

    None of the above. I’m a photographer after all and there’s lots to photograph in Manhattan!
