20 in ‘10 — here are the ones to watch next year

Like any respectable publication, The Brooklyn Paper treats the end of the year as a great excuse to make lists or make predictions about the 12 months to come. In 2008, we presented a list of “80 to Watch in ’08.” In 2009, we did the seminal “90 to Watch in ’09.” But we’re not insane! So instead of doing a “100 to watch in ’10,” we’re scaling it back a bit to offer our exclusive, “20 to Watch in ’10.” Enjoy. Comments (4).
