UES Harvard-educated Writer Discovers Williamsburg, Naked People

img c/o vanity fair

Oh, young Kate Ahlborn. Urban adventurer extraordinnaire, fan of Feist’s “1234” and Vanity Fair writer who in all her post-graduate life has yet to venture beyond the pearly gates of the Upper East Side. Well, she made it over here recently wearing her "tweed J. Crew jacket and Tory Burch ballet flats," and after "narrowly escaping death by skateboard on the Bedford subway platform" she caught up with choreographer Noémie Lafrance's new show (Times review, show information) where she had her face touched by a naked crazy person. She then took off running, never stopping once to breathe or look back at all the evil people in "hipsterville" chasing her back home. Imagine her surprise. She'd heard from her " more global friends" (WTF!) "that Brooklyn is a charming borough," but instead found her trip to exotic Brooklyn traumatizing. She'll never come back.

I left the rickety building slightly shaken up and eager to get back to Manhattan. After this experience, I’m fairly certain that’s exactly where I belong.

Below the jump, we've got video of the terrible experience she witnessed. Warning: art. You've got a few more days to check it out too. The show runs through the 12th, although "there may be an extension on April 15-19."


A watch that carries and shows off your Hamilton watches — this is exactly how a TechnoMarine IWC watches should be described. This traditional Swiss Jacob&Co watches that was first founded in 1997 and has been a trademark since then. TechnoMarine watches feature exemplary looks with bright and vibrant colors and excellent designs. All this makes this luxury Swiss Jaeger leCoultre watches stand apart from other Swiss Montblanc watches.
Omega watches
Swiss replica watches
Panerai watches

I’m fairly certain that’s exactly where we want her to stay.

what an annoying piece of shit

add it up people - you've been GOT! This is a snow job. A writer who is already familiar and fond of the artist's work decides to showcase her work, and realizes the best way to pick up the blogs is to tap into the blog-world's deep disdain for the UES and the Ivy-League educated. It's just too perfect from bits like "tory burch" to "global friends," and its all calculated to anger everyone in brooklyn. We're through the rabbit hole. . .

Every cheesy beach who works in my building wears those damn Tori Whatshername flats. It's a uniform! Glad to know people who go to Harvard end up so cosmopolitan and open to new experiences.

Paco on the VF site hit the nail on the head with his comment:

"Hopefully, you'll trade preppy for perspective one of these days."

Flavorpill had the same reaction.
