  •  Awww. I loved it. Funny story: (4+ / 0-)

    In college, I met a girl from a town of 600 people in Wisconsin. I couldn't imagine such a place. When I told her that I was from New York, she stared at me and said in complete astonishment, "People LIVE there? I thought it was just in the movies!"

    •  Just kidding (mostly) (3+ / 0-)

      I started on the UWS but lost my lease when the building sold. So, I'm part of the priced out wave of relatively recent arrivals to Brooklyn (2006). That said, I love it here and have definitely adopted outer borough ism.

      600 people? There are more than that on my subway commute!
