I posted this picture a few days after 9/11 last year; it really infuriates me. How the fuck can you just sit there like you’re in a fucking gentrification latte shop during one of the biggest tragedies this city and country has ever seen. I figured its around 12 noon when that picture was taken being that the towers have already fallen and their shadows are beneath them - which is why these cocksuckers are just lounging around in their casual hipster attire and not working. Worthless, space-wasting, useless, rent-raising bastards. I can just imagine how their day went: all woke up between 9:30 – 11:00am; bumped into each other at the $4.00 a cup coffee shop; heard about the attacks somehow and decided to stroll over to the waterfront to get a front row seat as if they were watching some cheesy rooftop indie film; discussed biking, flea market purchases, organic food, unsightly art and said “like, yah” about 300 times between the five of them. After the show, they went for brunch.
Since this was taken in 2001, these were the hipsters of the first wave of the invasion. I would bet my left nut that not one of these motherfuckers are still here. They’ve maxed out their stays at about 1 - 4 years and either dispersed and pioneered into other “kewel” cities or went back to their cul-de-sacs after failing as creative types.
Never forget 9/11 - and never forget that hipsters have turned Brooklyn into an organic, over-priced theme park for transient tryhard pussies.
