How many times can the press discover Williamsburg? It’s seems it goes on forever and ever.
[…] Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood has in recent years become one of New York City’s hippest areas. And with its easy accessibility — just a short ride on the L train from Manhattan’s Union Square — Williamsburg also stands apart as an ideal destination for visitors looking to explore another side of the City.

“Williamsburg is a haven for the young and the hip,” said George Fertitta […]

Now listen up. When I was in college. COLLEGE! (I’m pushing 40.) I read this in Ohio. OHIO! That Williamsburg was the hip ‘hood. I read this tidbit in New York Magazine. The issue was called “The New Bohemia Over the Bridge to Williamsburg” and is dated June 22, 1992. 1992! (I can’t type numbers in all caps but if I could, trust me, I would.)

So. By my calculations, this ‘Williamsburg is hip’ discovery has been going on for over 15 years. 15 YEARS! Please. Seriously. Everyone has figured it out by now. Stop it.
