Everybody Is Making Posters About Their Boroughs Now! Updated
Continuing in the printed fun begun by a Brooklyn print shop hatin' on Manhattan and a Manhattanite hatin' back, we have more graphic fun! Everyone wants to represent their borough!

Aw, Staten Island! You're so cute sometimes.

In true meta blog fashion, Brooklyn 365 offers up this one.
