The much talked-about (and much maligned) new reality series “Brooklyn 11223” makes its debut tonight on the Oxygen Network at 11 p.m. The series, which purports to be a look inside the lives of a group of 20-somethings in Bay Ridge, will live or die on its ratings.
Is “Brooklyn 11223” a new “Jersey Shore?” Will its stars become pop icons like Snookie and Mike The Situation? Only the viewers can determine that.
Councilman Vincent Gentile, state Sen. Diane Savino and a group of female business and civic leaders have been leading the charge against the new show, speaking out whenever and wherever they can, describing it as a false depiction of Bay Ridge women.
Readers of Bay Ridge Eagle can judge for themselves. We’ve been running an exciting series called “The Real Women of Bay Ridge’ highlighting the accomplishments of the community’s women.
