In case you had any doubts about what the Manhattan crowd thinks of Queens, the NY Post is here to set the record straight:
THE LONG WAY HOME
"WHY the hell are you moving there?"
"It was like they were thinking, 'Oh dear, they must not be doing well at all to be moving over there.'"
It also proves that the gentrification of Long Island City is not a natural event, but something forced upon Queens in order to prevent Manhattan yuppies with children from moving across the other river and taking their city and state tax payments with them.
