BROOKLYN HAS SOME PRETTY CHEEKY welcome signs — “Welcome to Brooklyn: fuhgeddaboudit!” — but it’s all done in good spirit, and those signs were also approved by the local government. I admire the pranksters who redid the welcome signs of Edmonton back in 2013, but it also makes me reconsider the “overly nice” stereotype Canadians are often associated with. Or maybe it’s just that they have this super badass side to them no one really gets to see. Regardless, if New York ever decides to change its welcome motto, I’m definitely voting for, “Suck it, New Jersey.”
