Brooklyn is only a short distance from Manhattan yet it has its own, highly distinctive identity. Talk to Brooklyn’s tight-knit but burgeoning community of designer-makers and you get the impression that this New York borough is widely seen as more romantic, bohemian, less overtly worldly than the more commerce-focused Manhattan. Yet it’s also easy to exaggerate the differences between these two creative hubs. After all, Brooklyn’s new generation of designers are, in their own way, highly ambitious and entrepreneurial. Even so, the ethos of their businesses is more leftfield, possibly more laid-back than those of Manhattan. (by Dominic Lutyens)

One of Takeshi Miyakawa's 'I LOVE NY' light sculptures which were intended to promote NY Design Week 2012
Earlier last Saturday (19 May 2012), while trying to display his love for New York, the city which for the past 23 years has been his hometown, via a new light sculpture installation, the renowned Brooklyn-based designer and artist Takeshi Miyakawa was arrested for reportedly ‘planting false bombs.’ Inspired by the iconic I LOVE NY plastic shopping bags, the designer intended to install the light ‘around the city in trees and on lamp posts as part of NY Design Week 2012.’ Following his arrest, a judge has decided on Sunday to hold Miyakawa for a mental evaluation, extending his detainment for an additional 30 days.
