Boston Almost Beats Brooklyn in Guggenheim Fellowships

Well, the Boston area, anyway.

Yesterday’s New York Times featured this full-page ad listing the 2018 Fellows (United States and Canada) appointed by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

By our count, the Greater Boston area garnered 17 Fellowships, while Brooklyn (Borough Motto: “You can’t afford to live here”) took home 18.

Hey, wait till next year, as Brooklynites used to say about Dem Bums. (Except in 1956, when – according to legend – a Brooklyn paper ran the headline “Wait till last year” after the Dodgers lost the World’s Serious.)

Then again, the local eggheads absolutely killed it in the social sciences.

One further consolation: Boston flat-out crushed Canada, which nabbed a paltry three Fellowships.

All in all, not a bad Guggenheim crop this year.
