All my hipster friends who live in NYC live in Queens or the Bronx.  For some odd reason, any description of the Brooklyn crowd always seemed to be Kids Having Fun With Mom and Dad's Money and/or Connections and hence embodying only the most f--king irritating things about "hipster" culture.

Why's this a big deal? That's just following a natural course of urban migration, funny clothes and tattoos aside.

Hastings on Hudson:  "The racial makeup of the village was 89.79% White, 2.35% African American, 0.17% Native American, 4.14% Asian, 1.82% from other races, and 1.73% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.50% of the population."

Yeah, those hipsters all love diversity, until they have a kid, then it's off to an all white town where it's safe to sneer at the racists.

Don't forget the shiatty slide down ad you get when using a adblocker that begs you to stop using an adblocker on Fark because it's ruining it's precious income.

I'd rather sites just pull the plug instead of shameless begging and awful ad placement.

That's where all the out-patients from the mental hospitals live. You don't want to go near disturbia. The hipsters only go into disturbia for outsider art and really rare deli foods like sheep's eyeballs, bear bladders and freshly picked thousand year old eggs packed in manure.

Creating Hipsturbia
By ALEX WILLIAMS
February 15, 2013


Otherwise, don't worry...you are not missing much.

Essentially it is just a article about butthurt suburbanites lamenting the rise of affluent hipsters outside of Williamsburg and Carroll Gardens. Standard NYT urban analysis piece to be discussed over $9.47 lattes and $7.83 muffins while waiting for your Tesla to charge.

Oh yeah...and your quintuplets are bawling in the backseat at the same time..

albuquerquehalsey: Thanks for the direct link

Boobies tag is still there, if underused. Walken tag appears to be no more.

Let me be the first to say: Not ironic.

Yeah - walking distance.  Great excuse for overpaying like hell for a 400ft2apartment that you'll never own.  Whereas out here, away from The City, any idiot with a decent job can own an actual house, with a yard, that's 6 times as large.  And, oddly enough, pay maybe 1/4 of what you're paying for your shoebox.

Yeah, I don't "get" the whole concept of using your apartment to sleep in and going and chilling at cool places that people in the 'burbs watch on TV, either. Let's you and me drive 20 minutes to a strip mall and get some Dominoes pizza or splurge and get some Olive Garden at the mall 30 minutes from here.

How much does the average person that could afford to live in the city but doesn't spend on gas, car payment and insurance just to get to work?  Bet the difference between our mortgages aren't even close to that total allowing me to save 25% of my income for retirement.  Who's the dumbass now.? :/

I wouldn't have so much problem with the hipsters if it wasn't for their general attitude. Steal all you want from other subcultures; such as Goths like me, Punks, Beatnicks, Hippies, Rednecks, ect, and mix it up all you want. But don't claim it as your own "original" idea and don't act like jerks to people who aren't like you.

The other problem is, that these Hipsters don't understand that they are part of the gentrification process. They seemly get confused on how after they all congregate in one area for a few years and have a few "artistic" shops, stores, and restaurants; suddenly it becomes a hot commodity for some wealthy people to move into that area.  Well guess what hipsters, some people move into your area have the money but they don't have the creativity; so they move into an "artistic" area and think just because they're there, it means they can pretend they're artistic.  We call them on something from their parents called a "trust fund", but it's probably too obscure, you hipsters probably never heard of it before.

My yard is the Presidio and Golden Gate Park.  I have a 15 minute bus ride downtown to go to work.  I have everything I need right here.  It's not overpaying when you can afford it.

You're obvious proof that any idiot with a decent job can own a shiatty cookie cutter house in Minivanland, USA.  Don't be so bitter you can't hack city life.

I love when people brag about how far their suburbia cookie cutter home has so much space.  Who gives a shiat.  Sure, my place in Brooklyn isn't a McMansion, but we have adequate space, a guest room, and a back yard to grill in.  What more does one need if one isn't a breeder?

Yeah, its pricier than some place in the sticks, thats the price you pay for convenience and not having to drive everywhere like a schmuck.

Jesus farking Christ, it ain't farking "fringe" anything.

Washing yourself in pickle juice while yelling Joan Baez lyrics is fringe, getting a tattoo is rebellious if your in high school.

Wanting to eat natural homegrown foods isn't rebellious, people have literally been doing it since the dawn of man.

Listening to obscure music and finding new acts isn't rebellious, again, literally everyone who turned 18 has done this.

NYC suburbs don't necessarily work that way. lots are bigger, but prices are not necessarily cheaper (Westchester especially) and one gets killed by property taxes.

property tax on $800k house in Queens: $5000
property tax on $800k house in Hastings-on-Hudson: $18,000

But faced with overpaying for a Brooklyn home that would barely contain a life with two young sons, they decided to look northward. "When we checked towns out," Ms. Miziolek recalled, "I saw some moms out in Hastings with their kids with tattoos. A little glimmer of Williamsburg!"

If these retards had left Brooklyn in the last decade or so this wouldn't have been surprising. You can't claim open-mindedness when you live in a farking bubble.

bears tattoos with his sons' names, Denim and Bowie,
