NY: Brooklyn’s Gayest District Missing that Gay Vibe

Columbia Street Waterfront District, BrooklynThe Columbia Street Waterfront District in Brooklyn boasts sweeping views of lower Manhattan, pleasant low-rise architecture and even a live poultry market.

But it doesn’t have a single gay bar. Nor do rainbow-hued flags flutter outside the cafe, the antique shop or any of the other new businesses dotting the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare. And, for the record, there are no plans to move Brooklyn’s annual gay pride parade there from its longtime route along Park Slope’s Fifth Avenue.

This scenario may surprise some, since the neighborhood has a greater proportion of same-sex households than any other area of the city.
