These are not New Yorkers. They're "New Yorkers," imported from some berg where they were overpraised as "artsy" by yokels.
This also applies to most of the Times staff.
Honey--The "New Yorkers" of cultural significance in history almost all came from somewhere else.
Thank you for weighing, Peoria.
R2 True. They came from Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens.

I thought these hipster douchebags were all safely ghettoized in Brooklyn.
What makes New York unique is not that the people born here are particularly talented (though some are). It's that talented people from all over the world come here.
Dorothy Parker--New Jersey
Willem de Koonig--Rotterdam
Louis Armstrong-- New Orleans
Jack Kerouac--Lowell, Massachusetts
J.P. Morgan--Hartford, Ct.
R7 Parker was born in her family's summer home in West End Long Branch. She was not raised in NJ, she was raised in NYC.
I'm sure the transplanted New Yorkers of her day never let her forget that she was from New Jersey.
R10 To which she would have replied she wasnt from NJ. Had her mother gone into labor a week later she would have been born in NYC.
Oh R8, the post said NY-ers of cultural significance. Nice try though.
