The Williamsburg Love Boat
After countless excrutiating decades in which young men in tight black jeans and ironically un-ironic neck scarves were deprived of aquatic transport, the Water Taxi has finally headed to the Brooklyn waterfront.
Red Hook? Check. Williamsburg? Double check.
But, of course, it’s hard to force trends upon the trendy. Therefore NYWT is specifically imploring “hipsters” to enter Flickr photographs of the special yellow boat.
What’s at stake? $9,140 worth of prizes. And Brooklyn’s dignity.
