I don't feel like playing your game. But I'll tell you this much;

There's no neighborhood in Queens that looks (or feels) anywhere close to Williamsburg.

As for prospect park, the only valid comparison I could think of, is Central Park. And that's mainly because they were both designed by the same architect.

Brooklyn is light years from being only either yuppies or artists. If you're talking about a select few areas in north brooklyn, then maybe it's starting to seem that way. But c'mon guy, let's not be silly here.

Long Island City is more similar to Williamsburg then Astoria, Astoria IMO is more like Bay Ridge.

LIC is more yuppie than hipster. Hipsters want "character" and the luxury condos in LIC are too pristine and corporate.
