The hipsters are only going to read these posts and the scale-tipping likes for people who agree with them and look down on all of us. We are all un-evolved slime that occupy nearby spaces.
I'm from the midwest and although my parents have the means to support me I don't ask them for help. Hell when I got here I spent a few days riding the L train back and forth for sleep and woke up @ 8AM sharp to go to work. NYC for me was all about pursuing my dreams and hustling to get there. I tend to not care what the hipsters do but it pisses me off when I walk into my neighborhood bars for a relaxing drink and to mingle with my neighbors only to be looked down upon because I don't wear vintage clothing and smell like I haven't taken a shower in a week :) When I lived in China I had an easier time mingling with the native Chinese before I knew much Mandarin.
I have some friends from home who live in my "East Williamsburg" block near the Morgan Av L who are true artists trying to make a name for themselves in their studios til the wee hours of the morning truly creating something to be appreciated. You can't generalize everyone in the neighborhood, but there are an overwhelming amount of douchebag hipsters in the neighborhood. To say they don't exist is self serving and ridiculous.
