In posts like How Not to Write a "Neighborhood Guide to Brooklyn," I've noted misguided efforts, in travel publications, to somehow propose a one-day visit to disparate parts of a vast, city-like borough.
Well, it gets worse. I just saw A Stroll Through Brooklyn: The Ultimate Guide for a Memorable Trip, which somehow describes Brooklyn as "an ever-evolving neighborhood with plenty to see and do" and then lists the following highlights: the Brooklyn Bridge, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Flea (seasonally closed, actually), and "some local cuisine."
The latter two examples are DiFara Pizza, which is not located near any of the above, and Miss Lily's, which is in Manhattan.
Oh well. The site, upon further inspection is called StupidDope, and it's apparently a content mill to draw eyeballs to a (not legal, though not prosecuted) cannabis delivery service.
