Fliers have gone up in Kensington, seeking “Real looking Brooklyn Working Class Types” to serve as extras on the police procedural Blue Bloods at a shoot this Friday, the Kensington Prospect reports. The show—on CBS, the network of grandparents—advertises the list of types for which it’s looking, painting a peculiar portrait, in equally peculiar language, of “working class” in today’s Brooklyn. Without further ado, here are your New Stereotypes, courtesy the Columbia Broadcasting System.
Hasidic Jews, women & men with Conservative Muslim attire, Russians, Polish types, Hispanics, elderly women & men, Urban types, hipsters, men with longer hair, people with tattoos.
Phew, get all those people together on a street corner in Chicago and I’d think I’d been magically transported through space to the corner of Church and Dahill.
