A while back we had the Brooklyn Civil War between North Brooklyn and South Brooklyn. Now, we have, well, just all out war in the form of "The War for Brooklyn," courtesy of Time Out New York. The stories in this war roundup package review all our favorite Brooklyn neighborhood skirmishes and the most hard-fought development project battles: Brooklyn Bridge Park, Gowanus, Downtown, Bed-Stuy, the Williamsburg-Greenpoint Waterfront, Red Hook and, of course, Atlantic Yards.
No war coverage is complete without analysis of the media types bringing you news from the front, in this case, the bloggers. They get their own TONY love as "The Embeds": B61 Productions, the Brooklyn Record, Brownstoner, Gowanus Lounge, Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn, Planet PLG and Set Speed. (Stormin' Norman Oder's Atlantic Yards Report from the Flatbush Avenue Front is the most notable omission from the Brooklyn Blogade.) Nothing like a little Brooklyn war talk to brighten up the day.
