After we posted the Sheepshead Bay – Penny Lane music video on Monday, a number of other blogs and websites began snatching it up. We don’t know where it appeared first, but we do know that no one credited Sheepshead Bites for cranking it out to the public.
But that’s not what’s got our panties in a bunch. What bothered us at Sheepshead Bites was Curbed’s reaction. One of the contributors there snarked up a post about the neighborhood that he’s probably never visited, and seemed in disbelief that we could find ourselves on New York Magazine’s list of top neighborhoods.
Sheepshead Bay came in at #27 on New York magazine’s Most Livable Neighborhoods list. Stat boy Nate Silver’s review of the ‘hood: “Far from the action but close to the sea; quiet, safe, and clean, with good public schools.” But this southern Brooklyn enclave has so much more to offer! Like the Banco Popular, or the Roll Roaster that’s “usually hit or miss.” In fact, one viewing of the above music video (set to the Beatles’ “Penny Lane”) and you’ll agree: Sheepshead Bay is deserving of a ranking as high as, dare we say, #26.
