I had the misfortune of watching this last night. Toni Senecal really needs new researchers because she got just about every fact about Ridgewood wrong. You can watch the entire disaster here.
- Ridgewood was never part of Brooklyn. Yes, there is a section of Bushwick that locals refer to as "Ridgewood" but the Queens section has never, ever been located in Brooklyn.
- Note the way she pronounces "Arbitration Rock"...
- She visits 2 foodie locations that are just barely in Ridgewood and considers a third one to be Ridgewood although it's most definitely in Bushwick.
- The "English" did not "name it Ridgewood after the area's green and hilly terrain". The area was named after the Ridgewood Reservoir, which itself was named after its sourcewater in Massapequa.
How do you "tour" Ridgewood without hitting Myrtle Ave, Forest Ave or Fresh Pond Road?
If you want to do a Bushwick piece, do a Bushwick piece.
Someone please make these people stop.
