Re: Re: Re: Why does Brooklyn inspire so many young writers?
I myself am a young writer and every story I have written takes place in Brooklyn. I guess this is because I'm in love with how Brooklyn used to be; romantic and nostalgic, a real sense of what a neighborhood was. There were people talking to each other out windows and children playing in the streets, everyone watched out for everyone elses kids, it was an American community, but yet, it was a piece of every country. Immigrants coming from Ellis Island had their influences dabbled on it, and everything seemed to be meshed together to form a family that extended down the street and around the corner. I think Brooklyn itself offers an array of different opportunities for a writer to pick and choose a story from.

It's one factor that can help explain the religiosity gap.
- Sociologists have long observed a gap between the religiosity of men and women.
- A recent study used data from several national surveys to compare religiosity, risk-taking preferences and demographic information among more than 20,000 American adolescents.
- The results suggest that risk-taking preferences might partly explain the gender differences in religiosity.
