They are not really similar not even close. Maybe I'm biased but if you were raised/bred in Brooklyn and move out it to Queens it is hella boring...especially these days at the pace that Brooklyn keeps growing I can't even keep up. In my short stint living in Queens I would go to the city for entertainment, I recon I would go to Brooklyn and the city if I still lived there, including all the people I knew in Queens came with me (lol). Plus I haven't been in Queens in years. And stop it with the blasphemy of comparisons.

They're more similar than they are different. But Queens beimg boring depends on which part you live in. And not all of Brooklyn is exciting anyway. I would much prefer Astoria or Ridgewood over Canarsie or Mill Basin.

For some reason, this board likes to pretend that all of Queens is like Rosedale.

If Forest Hills is "far eastern Queens", then what is Glen Oaks - Suffolk County?

Wow you just picked the most secluded areas in Brooklyn which are still more exciting than the most secluded parts of Queens lol (kidding). Yeah of course you can't compare Astoria or LIC to those areas, they have proximity to Manhattan just like Williamsburg.

What is boring about Queens? Even deep into Queens, Flushing, Forest Hills and Jackson Heights all offer wonderful city life.
What does Brooklyn offer? the bk bridge park is nice. but that's it

Forest Hills and Jackson Heights are not "deep"

And while I'm defensive of Queens, Brooklyn has a ton to do in the Northwest portion. Especially Williamsburg IMO

Why are you defining Queens by the most secluded areas but not Brooklyn? Most of Brooklyn really isn't that exciting anyway. East New York, Brownsville, Flatlands, Canarsie, Flatlands, etc. Northwest Brooklyn is where it's at

Forest Hills has the nicest architecture of any neighborhood in either boro. This is not up for debate. Brooklyn Heights comes in second.
