Hipster Traps

26 May

Yeah, it’s old news, but it’s still nice to feel protected.

I’ve lived in Williamsburg for a whole ten days and while I haven’t spotted one of these crafty traps yet, I can sleep much easier knowing that a skinny dude in a vintage cardigan is busting for one of those cigarettes.  Williamsburg has always been kind of a Biggie deal with some mainstream guidebooks going so far as to use the words “hotbed” and “crime.”  But liiiiiike everyone knows you can’t swing a Moleskin without knocking a soy chai out of some unemployed artist’s hands around here. Word.

Til I buy my own pair of oversized tortoiseshell glasses I can only wait for the metallic snap of the jaws around a skinny-jeaned leg on Bedford.  Alternatively I can accept that the whole thing is an ironic prank and hipsters really do Hate On Everyone, especially people who’ve been here ten days and say that they live here.
