Earlier today, DNAInfo reported that Bay Ridge is the new Williamsburg. This is a ridiculous claim, obviously. Bay Ridge is like 2 hours from Manhattan.
But that did not stop literally every single local blog from penning 600-word essays speculating whether or not Bay Ridge is, in fact, the new Williamsburg. Speculation about the new Williamsburg/Brooklyn and pointless screeds about why X, Y, or Z neighborhood and/or city is absolutely not the new Williamsburg and/or Brooklyn keep bloggers’ families fed and warm at night.
