Re: NY Post: L train almost eliminated?

For the most part, folks in Ridgewood considered "Brooklyn" to start at Broadway. Bushwick was more of an extension or satellite because many Ridgewoodians had family, friends or businesses there. If anything, Ridgewood fancied itself as a destination, where those who did well moved up to. (That somewhat explains why there is an attitude demonstrated by some beyond St. Nicholas that somehow made them a "better class" than those on the "Brooklyn Side." Interestingly, it seems that mentality was espoused more by those who arrived from the 1920s on, and particularly during the Depression.)
