Windsor Terrace Rises Up Against ‘Yuppyizing’ Journalist


Maybe Daily News writer Lynne Miller should have thought twice before she wrote this profile of her own neighborhood, Park Slope’s more affordable cousin Windsor Terrace, home of legendary Irish bar Farrell’s. It’s actually mostly a blandly positive review of new and old establishments, but one paragraph where she calls Farrell’s “not my cup of tea — or beer” has caused a near riot on a local blog, with everyone who’s lived in the neighborhood since 1647 piling on poor Lynne. One post has even coined a new verb: “When they try to Yuppyize every freakin neighborhood it sticks in my craw.” [Container Diaries]
