Not surprisingly, there are several digs at our beloved borough... Here's some of what collegeotr.com had to say:
"Did you know there are five boroughs in New York City?
That’s right; five. Smug Manhattanites love to pretend that the Big Apple begins and ends with their tiny, bourgeois island, but they’re wrong.
If you head northeast, you’ll wind up in the Bronx, a place that Yuppie parents warn their impressionable children never to go to at night lest they never return."
The post finishes with:
"Expect the announcement at some point this week and for NY’s second least appealing borough (sorry Staten Island; any place that requires travel via ferry is a terrible one indeed) to finally get some positive time in the spotlight."
So far, this positive time in the spotlight kinda feels more like a kick the face... but any press is good press I guess? Thank god for Staten Island's Jessica Simpson-esque public image...
By the way, the geniuses over at collegeotr.com also refer to the Bronx as "the little borough saddled atop Queens." Er, really?
