If there is one thing the New York Times likes to write about, it is that mythical, hip land known as Brooklyn. Beards! Pizza! Writers! Williamsburg! Brooklyn has it all.

The Times' fascination with Brooklyn is nothing new, though. We crawled through the archives and found that the paper of record has been fawning over Brooklyn for over 150 years.

So, just for fun: We're going to give you a few sentences, and you have to identify the year that each of these New York Times articles about Brooklyn was published. Some of these will really make you scratch your beard!
