Where can the Pacific Northwest be found in New York?

Answer: Brooklyn

About a year ago, I wrote about how annoying some of the denizens of Brooklyn can be and politely suggested that were turning the borough into the "Pacific Northwest cities they originally came from." (By the way, the response to this suggestion was not at all polite but it was definitely fun to read.)

Well in the Battle of the Borough Posters between Manhattan and Brooklyn (instigated by the latter, more pugnacious of the two), the Pacific Northwest jibe is restated. Check out the duel below.

Frankly I'm disappointed in Brooklyn. Don't the majority of New York writers live here these days and yet the jibe reads like a schoolyard taunt by a six year old kid. The hands down winner is Manhattan for the use of "twee."
