The Neighborhoods Issue

I would like to quickly applaud New York Magazine for it's amazing "Neighborhoods Issue" - an issue described as "Fifty ’hoods from across the five boroughs ranked, considering factors from housing stock to nightlife, by the statistical analyst Nate Silver; the mutual contempt between Williamsburg’s two primary populations; the quest to define, create, and sell a new neighborhood in the middle of Manhattan; and much, much more." This one was particularly interesting - 50 New York neighborhoods are ranked (Park Slope is in first place) and given short captions explaining and analyzing said ranks, alongside snapshots of the locales. My favorite spread in the issue, however, is the "Locals (A neighborhood is nothing without its characters)" by Bennett Marcus (images shown in this post) - each one is unique and eccentric in his or her own way, not to mention photographed beautifully by Andreas Laszlo Konrath. Love!
