"Which is the better borough: Brooklyn or Manhattan?"

That’s the question that will be posed on Oct. 7, at a Municipal Art Society fundraiser at South Street Seaport. (Of course, we Brooklynites know we have plenty to brag about, but it’s still news to Manhattanites.)

Representing our borough at the panel discussion will be Kurt Andersen, host of WNYC’s "Studio 360," and Brooklyn Brewery President Steve Hindy. Representing Manhattan will be Chef Mario Batali, pictured, of Babbo, Lupa, Esca and Otto restaurants and Apollo Theater Foundation Executive Director David Rodriguez.

The heated discussion will be moderated by impartial Westchester-ite, Andy Borowitz, author of the new book, "Who Moved My Soap? The CEO’s Guide to Surviving in Prison" (Simon & Schuster, $9.95).

The event, which begins at 5:30 pm, is a fundraiser for the Municipal Art Society. Tickets, which include admission to the event on the tall ship Peking (docked in "the neutral territory" of the East River at South Street Seaport’s Pier 16), cocktails and the after-party at Superfine (126 Front St. between Jay and Pearl streets in DUMBO), are $45. Water taxis from the ship to DUMBO are an additional $4.

For tickets, call (212) 935-3960. For more information, visit the Web site at
