The never-ending battle between Brooklyn and Manhattan continues, this time with a poster war. It all began when Brooklyn's Fourth Floor Print Shop called Manhattan U-G-L-Y, which was met with a response that only Brian Williams could love (knocking on the borough's fixation with everything artisinal). The response actually came from James Campbell Taylor, who told Vanishing NY he was compelled to fight back "after growing tired of such tiresome jabs towards Manhattan. What began as a form of reverse snobbery is in many cases revealing itself as sheer ignorance. Whatever you say about this island—and the well-documented changes it's going through—it remains undeniably one of the most wondrous places in the Western World."

Staten Island, The Bronx, and Queens... we challenge you to get in on this battle, and send us your posters! In the meantime...
