Marty's Mad

New, 11 comments

It's not just the city as a whole that's angry about the newly-released 2010 census numbers. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz would like the world to know that he's "flabbergasted" by the statistics, which show Brooklyn having grown by only 1.6 percent, or 40,000 people, in the past 10 years. The borough's population is officially lower than the 2009 projection of 2.579 million, and in Markowitz-speak, this basically translates to a declaration that Brooklyn is uncool. [BK Paper]
