Crooklyn? No, Quooklyn!27

Did you happen to see this piece in the Observer on Ridgewood, Queens, “aka Quooklyn”? Whhhaaaat?! Please tell me this is not being actually uttered out of anyone’s mouth. Have others heard this horrible (totally came from a Real Estate Broker) moniker?

Ridgewood’s “Architectural Eye Candy”

I’ve never been to Ridgewood, but we mentioned the hood in this piece a ways back, spurred by a NY Times article on somewhat far-flung neighborhoods ‘artists are flocking to’ (always a relative term with the Times). They’ve since written more, including the inevitable Brooklyn to Queens migration and seemed to have started with this Living In from 2011 — oh, if only we’d bought then! I’d love to hear more about Ridgewood’s schools and what life is like there if you have a family. It seems the Daily News is enamored with it too, claiming it’s the next hot hood, whatever that means.

With so many being priced out of Brooklyn (it’s only a matter of time for us renters) we may need to hop on the M and have a look.
