Manhattan: That Bit You Pass Through En Route to Brooklyn

New city guide skips 212 altogether, calls LES and Nolita Brooklyn nabes

In case you missed the fact that Brooklyn is the new Manhattan, urban go-to guide UnScene has proof: The 718 has swallowed up the 212 - literally. UnScene has been cataloguing urban coolness for a while now, and the new Brooklyn edition of its guidebook-pamphlet-whathaveyou (they don't publish a separate one for Manhattan) lists the LES, Nolita and Chelsea as Brooklyn neighborhoods, right alongside Williamsburg and Bushwick.

Wait, aren't we calling Bushwick East Williamsburg now? And what about NoMad? Color us confused. [via Curbed via NYC the Blog]
