Brooklyn: Undiscovered Utopia

"Why don't more people live in Brooklyn?" wonders a contributor over on the StreetEasy message boards, who continues: "I'm a Manhattanite, 15 years here now. But I went to Park Slope this weekend, beautiful. Great place at Prospect Park. Nice housing stock. Nice shops and restaurants. It seemed like what the Village pretends it is, but really isn't because the Village has plenty of ugly tenements, bad housing stock, NYU kids, etc. I just wish there was more than the F train." One reply: "You answered your own question. It's transportation and useful retail (such as groceries)." [StreetEasy]
