Let's Demand Seperate Borough Boards! [Moved from Outer Boroughs Board]

How can this be a really serious place to discuss food if Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx are all lumped together as Outer Boroughs?

I mean come on - Brooklyn and Queens for sure deserve there own Boards!

What say ye?

  1. If we were drowning in hundreds of posts a day, then I'd agree with you, but there's only a trickle of information per day on the Outer Boroughs board (except maybe for an overload of Park Slope queries), so I think it's probably fine as it is. I'm hoping the action picks up some more.

    1. I don't disagree with Brooklyn, Queens or SI being included in the Boroughs board - to the best of my knowledge, as a native NYer, they always have been considered part of the Metro NY area. Nonetheless, if there's enough hound activity, they should have their own boards. What irks me is that places such as Buffalo,Rochester, Albany and Thousand Islands being included in the Tristate area board? Who makes these nonsensical geographical decisions? Get real - nothing against Philadelphia - but it's a heck of a lot closer to NYC than Buffalo. I always thought that the Tristate or even Metro NY area included North Jersey,Westchester/Rockland, Southwestern CT, and Long Island. The fact that the board is called NYC Metro (and north) is a cop-out.

      1. is it me or were there more posts on the tri-state and outer borough boards on the old site?
