ATP doesn't even know what to say. We don't think that PLG folks are particularly belligerent, at least not in our day-to-day experience. But, nonetheless, here are some quotes from Brownstoner accumulated over the weekend.
"Here we go again. If anyone says anything that's less than glowing about Lefferts, there's hell to pay. Good grief."
"PLEASE STOP THIS DYSFUNCTIONAL ARGUMENT!!!!"
"I had hoped we'd heard the last of this whole PLG issue. Can't you people ever have done with anything? The rest of us are tired of reading this junk. Here's a peace proposal:
Critics of Lefferts: Instead of phrasing your worries/concerns in terms of Lefferts, phrase them move vaguely in terms of NE Brooklyn or something like that. In general, avoid terms like "Lefferts" and "PLG".
Residents of Lefferts: Please don't be overly sensitive and/or belligerent. If someone does say something you don't like about Lefferts, don't lash out at that person. Instead, feel free to criticize my nabe, Midwood. We're an easy target and we can handle it, so take your best shot!
Are both sides willing to abide by these proposals? If so, then we might be able to get back to a more interesting discussion."
Well, nice of someone to put their neighborhood up on the cross to spare PLG. But, are PLGers a little defensive? Do we have to be? Are our problems so bad?
Whatever, we're definitely prettier than all the prettiest girls in Bed Stuy, Clinton Hill and Fort Greene COMBINED. Yeah, you heard us!!
