In other NY1 news - EXCELLENT vox pops this morning in a story on how the L train will soon be automated on weekends. The crew obviously just stopped at Bedford Ave; the people they interviewed looked like they were at a casting call for the next Harmony Korine movie. The first chick - we'll call her hipsterette #1 -- had pink hair and a lip piercing. She said something like, "uh, i dunoooooooo, having a train without a driver seems, like, really creeeeeepy."
This was followed by hipsterette #2, who had a darker shade of pink hair and also sported a lip piercing. This comment was then followed by a dude with shaggy hair; he was definitely a hipster, but more of the Elephant 6 collective variety than the exit wound hairdo, electro pop variety. Anyway, it's been awhile since I have seen such a strictly representative sample of a neighborhood on any news broadcast, anywhere.
