Alors, Les Hipsters

Possibly the best blog headline I’ve ever written.

From The Observer, an amusing account of French tourists flocking to Brooklyn:

The tourists chuckled knowingly as Ms. Goujon went on to list a few cliché signifiers, which included bulldogs, graphic design and, of course, fixed-gear bicycles.

Seriously, what is it with fixed gear bicycles? But more from the article:

What Brooklyn did better than what we did in Franc is the cool aspect. In France, all those places exist, but they are not cool.

Les hipsters indeed…
