Taken to Task

I had an email from Flatbush Gardener chiding me for my earlier post on the geography of South Brooklyn. Mr. Gardener says I was a bit harsh in my assessment of his original objection to Ms. Heather’s description of the boundaries of South Brooklyn. Point taken. He also explains his South Brooklyn position in a comment to the NYShitty post that I linked to originally. And a valid position it is – as Mr. Gardener notes, Flatbush was for many years a separate town from the City of Brooklyn (it was, with Brooklyn and Bushwick, one of the six original towns dating to the Dutch era of Brooklyn).

[Ed note: As Xris found out, I keep comments off on these quick link posts. But you can always email comments to 11211[at]brooklyn11211.com.]
