The NY Times reported back yesterday, declaring that Williamsburg is popular well outside its zip code, in Japan, and Chicago seems to be filled with fans as well. Brooklyn Brewery owner Steve Hindy stated: “We sell beer in Chicago, and Chicago people are not too enamored of New York. They really have, almost as bad as Boston, this inferiority complex about New York. But for some reason, they don’t blame Brooklyn.” Brooklyn Industries even opened a shop in the Windy City.
