I gotta ask, how young people can afford to buy or even rent in Manhattan?
 
2012-07-29 08:35:42 PM  
How about we ship them all to Staten Island? They'll love it there.

Greenwich Village is the only place on Manhattan they could afford, so it would become hipsterville by default. Even Hell's Kitchen has been gentrified into "Clinton."

Also, things occasionally explode there.

Good, Keep the Fark over there, while I watch my Theatre and have dinner and wine after a day at the Museums. Filthy hippies.

how much money do these "hipsters" have like 10 million $
that's the minimum bank balance you need to live in a place like nyc

Can we send them inland to Detroit and Cleveland and other cities? There will be two outcomes.

1. They get shot in the crime infested neighborhoods

2. They will annoy the gang enough to leave, then turn the Rust Belt into a socially viable area again.

Either way, we win.

Good grief they're like locust. They swarm and suck the life out of an area and then move on.

I usually don't denigrate anyone for letting their individualism shine through or letting the proverbial "freak flag fly" but there is something inherently infuriating about hipsters or anyone who sets out to carry on that look. There's just something... Wimpy about it. The "men" look weak and powerless and don't get me started on the beards.

Their parents are rich.

That's the secret of the hipsters. They like to *pretend* they are poor, but they are generally rich-as-fark. There is usually a group "hipster parasites" that hang around the rich hipsters, mooching off of them, and providing them with drugs.

This is the arrangement that all groups of "cool kids" have had through the ages. It's nothing new.

The hipsters have fanned out to New Jersey (the ones that can't afford Manhattan or Williamsburg. Nearby me, Asbury Park is starting to teem with them. They took over Asbury Lanes years ago, put up art galleries, badly named restaurants, and snobby coffee shops. Yet it seems to never satisfy them.

WTF Indeed: Well, there's always Queens...


I have hipster friends who live in Queens so I'm getting a kick. They're far, far less insufferable than those in Brooklyn. I actually *enjoyed* hanging out with the Queens kids.

You know how I know oh whatever.

Detroit has hipsters. They're the more hardcore less spoiled twit kind, though, and are generally doing some cool stuff in the city. Have been for awhile, and I know a good number of people who have been homesteading in a manner of speaking for years now.

So you're saying that they were in Detroit before it was cool?

Bingo. It's not about the style per se, it's the "slumming" aspect of it that makes it hipster.

buckler: When was Manhattan ever not the US hipster capitol?


Really? I figured Manhattan was as mainstream as it got. TV shows based there, tourists very common, lots of money around. Hipsters should feel uncomfortable there, unless mainstream is the new ironic, or some other odd BS like that.

/Why does it seem like all hipsters are simply pretentious and self-contradictory?

No, it IS about the style: those skinny jeans are the worst invention since the polyester leisure suit. Christ-in-a-sidecar do those things piss me off. They scream "I have no upper body strength. Please take my wallet."

You have never eaten salsa in Texas, obviously. There are plenty of things NYC does better but I guaran-damn-tee you salsa is not one of them.

I've had Mexican and Tex-Mex in NYC and it's not quite as bad as Mexican/Tex-Mex in the midwest but it's still awful.

They are trying to take over OTR here in cincinnati. Well, they take day trips to OTR, then flee back to clifton. As long as they stay out of newport and covington.

/seriously though, OTR needs the influx of dollars and people.

I lived in NYC for two years, and spent a lot of time downtown, Including Greenwich Village. Seems like everything "cutting-edge" there spent a year or so filtering down to the other three corners of the US to become "hipster".

Good question. The reason why is pride. Both Texans and NYC people share a lot of it. The conundrum lies in the fact that Texans fought a war of independence, while NYC has the priviledge of having their culture splashed before all Americans due to the fact that their owned by a group of nice jewish people who have the luxery of media ownership and who's aunt, uncle came from NYC so that's why a hollywood film is filmed in NYC. All comes down to nice jewish people. Get it?

Tattoos are so cool!

They totally speak to who you really are as an individual.
And they certainly don't look stupid.

The Mexicans here in NYC realize that the locals are looking for authentic Mexican cuisine and won't settle for that tex-mex crap, and they are happy to comply. Just go to any Mexican restaurant in east-Harlem, and you get far better Mexican food than anything I tried when I spent 6 months in Houston.

I think the guys on the right have been misidentified. Those are not hipsters, they are gay. Maybe gay hipsters.

I really enjoy today's youth culture. Growing up in the 80s and 90s, if you wanted something different you had to really search for like-minded people and finding your place outside of mainstream culture was a chore made easier only if you lived near a major city or had a cooler older sibling to introduce you to stuff. It was ridiculous. Now I see kids rolling past on homemade tall bikes, talking about pickling, making music from such a ridiculous number of influences and generally creating these little enclaves of oddball eclecticism that I really would have enjoyed. They have also grown up in a world where the American dream has rejected them, so why not make a homemade cigar box guitar and learn some kitchen tonk music... it's not like the majority of them are finding fulfillment through whatever shiat job they have to pay the bills.
