Brooklyn: The new Beverly Hills?

Well, I wouldn't go that far...

But I do have a story in today's NY Post about the celebs who have made beloved brownstone Brooklyn their home. There are bunches.

And there was some personal relevance to at least two of the jokes in this piece:

I once saw Turturro waiting for a table outside Al Di La.

And I have a reliable witness report that says that Paul Giamatti was once having lunch in the Heights Cafe when someone asked him for wine advice.

"I don't know anything about wine!" he practically growled. "It's just a character I played!"

...he must get that question a lot.
