There’s been a heck of a lot of talk about Portland lately, what with the Fred Armisen/Carrie Brownstein show “Portlandia,” all about how the city stuck in the ’90s with its progressive politics and its locavore restaurants and its whole DIY artisinal cheese vibe. Watching “Portlandia” was a little headsmackingly close to home for me, though, because I live in Brooklyn. And not just any part of Brooklyn — Greenpoint, which is the Polish neighborhood directly to the north of Hipster Ground Zero, Williamsburg. Since Winona lives in Portland, we decided to compare and contrast our two fair cities — after all,”Portlandia” spawned an awful Brooklyn parody called Brokelandia (don’t watch it, it’s truly appalling). The verdict? Well, we’ve got Maggie Gyllenhaal. How you like us now?
