"As annoying as this announcement will be to those who live there, Brooklyn has become an adjective, a shorthand for a certain style of living." Thus begins New York's latest cover story on the BKLYN, this time focused on the emergence of a certain "Brooklyn Style."

See also a guide to the restaurants defining Brooklyn's nabes and a useful map of all the stores, restaurants, and notable spots described herein.
