Re: “This Way for Details on Exiles from Hipster Brooklyn

As a valley girl for centuries, one of the "locals "..apparently needing gentrifying...can I sigh and wonder why the chronogram, which received it's primary following of people from the fascinating Eric Francis horoscopes hidden in the back...and applaud this wonderful publication for the best part of a decade of trying to get business moving in ktown once again...the art and covers were and are always appealing and that they stamped a cool vibe on where we all were at..and how we lived and what we were moving towards..and in that way the scene belongs to us the gritty survivors..who have a truth about the process of the reframing of a people, once big blue abandoned them to figure out just who they were...and we are the early issues that made the arty folk among us want to browse it, liking the editorial ideas of local people...authentic middle class "elites"of warmth and a belief that we would survive and be discovered and ignite imagination that the backbone of the valley.is so rich in history.that we our proud to be living in such a wonderland ..and that's what the chronogram embraced, and should be rewarded for the not giving up on the local charm..as for the ones in question now who throw their shadow on the quasi ridiculous idea that we are becoming brooklyn
.that's just a sales pitch that's found an audience of what feels like great people who appreciate the vibe here and are welcome.to come to upper brooklyn if the label makes them happy...I liked brooklyn when i was young and lived there for awhile..it feels a compliment to me..it is after all the people who choose to make a committment that decide a city's fate.
