People often ask me what the difference is between the Upper West Side and Bay Ridge. Well, Overheard in New York has posted the perfect answer.
Mom to seven-year-old crossing street: "Be careful, dear. You don't want to get run over or we can't have sushi."

--78th & Amsterdam

Father to son running towards intersection: "Remember! A foot in the street means a foot in your ass!"

--57th & 4th, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn
Simple and beautiful.

Oh, God, that last one sounds like my father!

I used to tell my friends that I could tell a Brooklyn bar from a Manhattan bar:

In Manhattan, they talk about obscure theater productions, while in Brooklyn they talk about repairing the car.
