This week Emily Carman and Dominique Gauvard asked BC students and faculty, Most people know that "The Big Apple" is a nickname for New York City. Although there are nicknames for the borough of Brooklyn, there isn't one nickname that's more popular than the rest. What do you think Brooklyn's well known nickname should be?
"'The Big Cheesecake' because of Junior's."
"'The Place Where Steve Buscemi Hangs his Hat'. I love him, and he lives right by me!"
"The Beautiful Borough."
"Brooklyn is well known for so many things. It has good pizza, Grimaldi's, Coney Island, Prospect Park, and gorgeous brownstone neighborhoods. I think it would be difficult to give it one single nickname."
