I just wanted to post some recent fan mail and thank everyone that sends in links and tips whether I use them or not. Keep sending them in because since I can’t long board from cafe to bar to art gallery in my pseudo-rock star attire from 9-5 all week long, or sit in a loft full of Mac computers and filthy looking interns, there is no way I could do the necessary research needed to fill these pages with ridiculous articles and stories of these attention-starved, spatula-physiqued, Brooklyn-ruining staycationers. Enjoy.
I’m a 46 year-old Brooklynite living in exile. I fell off the monkey bars in Carroll Park, had my first beer at Farrell’s, fished from the back of Korvette’s and used to sneak into every movie at the Marboro from the fire exit. Your site made me howl. Great job! Thanks.
Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.
Where have you been all my life!???
I scream about hipsters pretty much everyday and am glad that I now have an outlet for it other than some sad sacks on the street who think I am bat shit crazy (but know I am right).
As a hard working City employee (haha) I now have a more productive way to spend my work days. I am a native Bay Ridge girl so while I am not as gangsta as some other bitches I can hold my own and will glady fight a hipster any day anytime.
Thank you again for making fun of this human plague.
Also, the map with the line across is it brilliant.
Just read your post about park Slope douchebags and I am instant fan. Keep up the excellent writing.
Thank you for your blog. It may be the first blog that I actually end up returning to because, in the past, I have found blogs to be a self centered exercise practiced mainly by hipsters.
I am with you.
This afternoon I was riding my bike in Bay Ridge on the promenade and found a hipster between the bridge and 92nd street with filthy hair in a ponytail and a lame beard with a sissy hipster bike that my Chevy Suburban of a bike could crush. There were also some possible hipsters on the Veterans pier. They were shivering their tails off, yes Megan and Josh when you are by the water there will be a slight breeze.
I discovered your site only a few days ago and haven’t been able to stop reading it. Your observations are so incredibly spot on that I feel they belong in a textbook of some sort.
I travel quite a bit and have been subjected to hipsters of every manner.
When I lived in Halifax years ago I went on a few dates with a girl enrolled in the local art school. I was much younger and a bit naive, so by art school I figured it was a college where people learned how to paint portraits or make clothes. Fuck it, I don’t know what I was thinking, she was hot. She invited me to a dance at her college one weekend. Hoping to impress I wore my nicest clothes and a blazer. When I entered the first thing I saw was two guys in speedos, suspenders, and hard hats humping a pinata to the tune of music I can only describe as of alien origin.
For our second date she took me to a gallery to see some MFA thesis’. The first display was alright, ceramics and what not, stuff I could possibly see being put to some sort of practical use. We moved to the second display in the adjacent room. It was an empty room, but there were people standing around… they seemed excited, they were taking pictures. I figured that the display hadn’t been set up yet and left. Apparently, the empty room WAS the art thesis. Fuck sakes. This asshole got his Masters for literally doing nothing.
Lastly, I stopped by her place one evening. She was stressed because she was trying to finish her final project, which was due that night and which she hadn’t started yet. She decided to cut up ping-pong balls and hang them by thread in her classroom. She got an A plus.
Just wanted to show some support and say thanks for a great website. I make sure to check it out a few times a week and a lot of the material is fuckin hilarious, but sadly its also true as this shit is making its way down to South Brooklyn. Anyway, I hope you can get some kind of t-shirt thing going so we can make a statement and show these POS’s that they’re not welcome here.

Dear die hipster,
I am an avid reader of your site. Born in Flatbush and lived most of my life in Midwood (All below the red line…which btw is being breached every day.) I do appreciate every thing you do in support of us who were born and raised in this beautiful place called Brooklyn; and against the whale guano that has slowly sludged its way all throughout the boro. I do not know who you are but i do consider you a brother in arms! In the words of the Motto for brooklyn : Eendraght Maeckt Maght (unity makes strength) Its the original motto from the dutch.
