I was recently asked just this by Julie Strickland of Brooklyn Based. Being the colossal dork I am, I brought the above map to her attention. As you can see it places East Williamsburg in— gasp— Queens! Those of you who are looking for a little fun reading on this hot and humid day should give this tome a read. I am not suggesting this for purely shameless self-promotional purposes either. Did you know there was a place in Brooklyn called “Pigtown”? There was. Perhaps the New York Times should profile that!
