Why Can't Queens Just Be Queens?

New, 5 comments

Talking about the gentrification of Queens is a lot like telling a joke that never ends and has no punch line. But we do it anyway! AM New York is the latest to join in on the discussion, asking if Queens is the next Brooklyn. Reading the words "is___the next anything" is a little nauseating, but hey, we can't help ourselves anymore. The piece pretty much debunks the idea of the borough becoming a cluster of "cool" neighborhoods like DUMBO or Fort Greene, placing the blame on the largely suburban layout of most of Queens. The piece here. [AM NY]
