Like yah, be green.
Like yah, local local local.
Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit. These fucking Iggy Pop-physiqued frauds are treating this city like Fauxhemian Disney World. Playing in it 24/7 then pioneering into the next rilly kewl city or back to Mommy’s Midwestern basement. Over the last 2 years, hipsters have “discovered” Rockaway beach and of course have infested it like fucking rats; dumping their garbage everywhere because you know, they are so eco-friendly.
Last year I posted about the residents of Rockaway complaining about the invasion of hipsters on their beaches. Well, as you would expect, there are even more going this year – discovering this new place to annoy the fuck out of people. They even have a new way of getting there so they don’t have to come in contact with icky and scary natives on the A train. There is now a Rock-a-Bus. Yep, a yellow school bus that makes round-trips from the creative center of the universe – Williamsburg – to Rockaway. Imagine all the unwashed, quirky-tattooed, bearded, scallion-limbed, self-proclaimed artists on that bus at one time. Sickening.
The Daily News article says:
“The influx of a young, hipster crowd, a booming surf culture and revamped food concessions have made Rockaway a prime destination over the past two summers.But that popularity hasn’t translated into expanded services from the city, locals said.”
Oh don’t you worry one bit. The moment Bloomberg’s gentrification administration gets a wiff of this influx (they are still too busy catering to the transplants in North Brooklyn and Park Slope) of hipsters in Rockaway, there will be tons of clean-up crews, boardwalk repairs and police sent in to help prepare it for a full-on, rent-raising, native evacuation/yupster transformation.
