Perhaps Toure is right, and Brooklyn is such a tiny place that no part of it can be said to be south of any other part. I don't know, never been there, and don't care. But when I think of Brooklyn, I think of tenements of three room apartments packed with families of 8 or more Jewish, Italian and Puerto Rican immigrants. I get that from "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn," "A Streetcar Named Desire," and "Westside Story." For a stereotypical black neighborhood, you need to refer to Harlem. And yes, I know "Westside Story" was set in Manhattan. It doesn't matter. I'm talking stereotypes here.
