According to Real Estate Brokers, All of Brooklyn Is an Extension of Williamsburg

A hilarious new map on Reddit pokes fun at real estate brokers’ tendency to stretch the truth to when it comes to an apartment’s proximity to desirable Williamsburg. Here, Coney Island is South-SouthSouth Williamsburg, East New York is South EastWilliamsburg, but only a tiny little triangle in Brownsville gets a reprieve from the hipster treatment as it’s dubbed simply “nope.”

Though the map is purely for satirical purposes, it’s based in a realistic trend of neighborhoods taking on ridiculous monikers only to entice unassuming apartment seekers. Think Quooklyn‘s plea to turn Queens in Brooklyn or the fact that Roosevelt Island, a completely free-standing island, is more often than not marketed as the Upper East Side.
