What part of Brooklyn is Moonstruck set in?

Is it still predominately Italian like in the film?

by Anonymousreply 13Last Saturday at 11:51 AM

I never saw the movie, but according to Wiki, it's set n Brooklyn Heights (also where The Cosby Show was set) which is actually strange to me. I always thought it was Bensonhurst or Bay Ridge like Saturday Night Fever.

Brooklyn Heights is predominately wealthy and white. LOTS of Hipsters/trustfund babies.

R1 ummm in the 80s and 90s there were more black people there than there are now. Brooklyn Heights “rich” was still cheap 30 years ago.

The rom-com part.

It's actually set in Crown Heights.

R4, where did I say anything about 80s/90s? I was talking about now. Hipsters, wealthy, white...NOW and for about the last 20 years

I actually lived in Carroll Gardens for the first ten years of my life (80s) and where I lived, it was Italian, Irish, Arab and Spanish. Very few black people. Where the Barclays Center is now was always like the dividing line between where black people lived and everyone else.

r7 it was not WASPs.... so it was ethnic, and back then, CHEAP. You must not know that Italian areas were cheap and broken down also. I thought you were a Brooklynite???

And you must not know your own comment.... let me repeat it to you...

You saying it is strange it was set in "white" Brooklyn Heights implies you are speaking about THEN, not NOW.

NO, I said it was strange because I just assumed it was Bensonhurst or Bay Ridge because I assumed it was similar to SNF. I literally never saw a single scene of Moonstruck. I know downtown Brooklyn was Italian. I even know the fucking bakeries that are still there. I absolutely referred to NOW when I said wealthy and white. Not the 80s or 90s. And I never said "WASP." Where the fuck did you come up with that? Did I say it was a bunch of blue bloods lived there in the 80s and 90s? Are you fucking serious with this shit?

BTW, I'm not going to keep going back and forth with this nonsense. Think what you want. I'm already exhausted from you. Now I know how flyover types feel when they find NYers like you insufferable. Jesus.

Looks of hot Italian sausage around Bensonhurst!

r10 you shouldn't call yourself a Brooklynite unless you were born and raised here. Brooklynites take pride in their home. Thanks.

Brooklyn Heights is full of identical cousins.
