Gentile, Bay Ridge’s Women Leaders To Protest “Brooklyn 11223”

Councilman Vincent Gentile will join an unnamed group of prominent Bay Ridge women on Friday for “a press conference in defense of our neighborhood.” They intend to protest Brooklyn 11223 – a new Southern Brooklyn-based reality show set to premier on the Oxygen Network at the end of March.

A media advisory sent to Bensonhurst Bean from Gentile’s office, which included links related to the show’s content, describes what they’ve seen so far as “gratuitous, classless and heavy on the stereotypes.”

If you’d like to contribute to the show’s ratings by making it a household name make Oxygen aware of your displeasure, the press conference will take place at Outside Beyond Dance Studio (8717 3rd Ave) this Friday, February 24, at 11 a.m.
