The dazzling hotel and night life complex, a staple of the Manhattan circuit, has finally washed up on Brooklyn’s hype-friendly shores, bringing with it the kind of crowds eager to finally explore the Next Big Thing. And what are they finding across the river? Communal tables, artisanal beer, saltwater pools and a cast of characters right out of the HBO series “Girls.” - The New York Times

A blog post is about to come up about hipster culture, corn syrup and decay, but suffice to say — the Manhattanization of Williamsburg along with real world examples hyping the Frankensteinization of local offerings that is the mating call for the Williamsburg-Mission-Silverlake hipsters are making me long for the days where it really took an adventure — a train journey, a hack through the bush, a hitchhike across the continent — to find stuff that’s cool. Now, it’s a mere click away from your screen… or an oh-so-long 10 minute train ride across the river.
