There's always good news to be had. For instance, from somewhere in Crown Heights and/or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens "Brooklyn residents are experiencing a sudden surge of swagger as seen with the new BMW's, Benz's and Porche suv's on the road, oh and a couple of ferrari's sprinkled with a lamborghini here and there zooming past the beatnik bike riders. Hah! Their is no swagg in bike riding." [Brooklynian] For more stories from Curbed, go to curbed.com.
