Whatever Williamsburg ever was, it's a white man, middle-aged, on Bedford Avenue, sitting on the curb, slobbering on an unlit cigar, in front of an Equinox, drunk, and leering, now.
He was lifted up and carried off by a woman, big shopping bag in hand, who came out of the Duane Reade, who I’d guess was his wife.

In the corridor under 6th and 7th adventures, between the L train and 123 trains, people are grieving, sharing, and contemplating the results of the election. Some are stopping to read, others to talk to and console one another.

I had assumed, after years of living in Brooklyn, everybody of a certain social-economic standing, from certain suburban places, and of an age, feeling nostalgic for pounding nerds, or resentful for being picked last ans wanting retribution now they're grown up and have successfully reinvented a self and started doing crossfit so they can like, definitely throw a ball, and hard, and catch them too, or at least take the pain from the sting of rubber against a cheek regardless of agreed-upon head safety rules, did everywhere.
