Just a month ago we reported on the Hipster v. Hebrew warfare taking place in Williamsburg.
CNN has just broke the story on the latest brewhaha - Hipster v. Strollers in Park Slope. According to their correspondents:
Single hipsters and others without (and sometimes with) kids complain about being asked to watch their language, to not smoke outdoors near strollers and to keep their drunk friends under control so as not to scare the little ones. They don't want to feel pressure to play peekaboo. They want to cry over their beers, they say, without having an infant drown them out. If anyone is spitting up, they want it to be them.
The gang warfare supposedly ignited about two years ago when our beloved Union Hall, a popular stomping ground, banned strollers from the premises. Apparently a team of babies beat a group of NYU students wearing skinny jeans in the championship bocce game and isht went down. Union Hall has since rescinded the no-stroller policy but the war rages on.
Thank you CNN, for covering this important story. I hear there is something going on in Chile and something else happened in Haiti recently but this is really the news that is fit to print.
