There needs to be a Brooklyn and Queens Forum/Topic
I don't have a problem with the present structure at all. If anything, Chowhound needs fewer boards, not more. But I agree with Jen that it would be extremely helpful if posters could identify the location and neighborhood of their posts and in the title of their threads. That way one can just scroll past the threads that are not of interest, or one can make the search feature work for them, rather than having to click through a bunch of extra boards.
I'm in Brooklyn, and I'm totally pleased that Queens and the Bronx and SI, even tho I'm rarely there, are grouped together. That way we can compare them without causing a fuss. Mostly I don't want to have to keep tabs so many boards...
and I agree that this topic has been done to death at various times - you could refer to those discussions to get some of the many opinions already expressed.
