Even if the Brooklyn Literary Scene is dead, or as Colson Whitehead put it, annoying and irrelevant, there still are a lot of writers kicking it in the borough of churches. In today's New York Observer, Fort Greene's own Doree Shafrir made an extensive list of the Brooklyn literarati, including neighborhood listings. Not to sound like an asshole, but even I didn't know about some of the writers and editors on the list. The Observer's non-college educated readership will be totally lost.

For your benefit, I took all of Doree's hard research and remapped it, including only the attractive writers. The addresses of these writers are estimates, but it so happens that Fort Greene is starting to have the literary cachet of Paris's Left Bank.
