Wrong-Way Bicyclists/Cars in Bike Lanes
We understand that for a very long time this city was a lawless, uncivilized rat race of do-anything/go-anywhere transit, and that the suicidally vulnerable cyclist had to do whatever it took to survive. But you know what? There are bike lanes now, and a D.O.T. that seems to care, so if we want to be treated as legitimate transportation, we have to act like it—and that means not going the wrong way down a bike lane on a one-way street. Ok? (And to all you cars who use the bike lane as a passing lane, you're villainous assholes who should be set on fire.)
The Williamsburg Hotel
As we wrote last month, online: "There's just something about a fancy boutique hotel (and a fancy boutique hotel bar) that represents the last frontier of mindless douchebaggery, the kind of superficial, stage-managed exclusivity that appeals to the worst kind of vanity in the worst kinds of people." Alright, we know Williamsburg has been evolving into a condo playland over the last decade, but a boutique hotel/condo with a restaurant called "Streets" that serves high-priced Third World street food has really put things over the edge. Say it with us, "the Meatburg District."
