"The Brooklyn of Every State" got NY wrong
For New York's Brooklyn, you could have named the specific sections of Brooklyn that are progressive, such as Greenpoint, Williamsburg, or Bed-Sty. Instead you named the entire county of "Queens" which makes as much sense as saying that the entire county of Brooklyn is progressive and contains "hipsters." Queens and Brooklyn are not only completely different counties, but Queens is nearly twice as large, even more diverse, and not entirely progressive. Just thought you should have the cornerstone of your entire article a bit more accurate.
