Just what Queens needs - more trash.

Wasn't this posted 2 days ago? What's with the bump?

Hey, c'mon, Anonymous #1. Not all Brooklynites are trash. One of my oldest friends grew up and still lives in Brooklyn. And one of those statistics is another longtime friend who grew up in Maspeth, lived briefly in Brooklyn, and a couple of years ago moved back to Queens when she bought a house with her husband.

Yes, but it seems the good ones stay in Brooklyn. But the "trash" of Brooklyn seems to make their way here.
