Williamsburg is On Fire! Here Come the Hipster Jokes!


A four-alarm fire broke out on N. 7th Street near Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg yesterday, damaging two buildings and causing residual damage to at least two more, Gothamist reported. Hang on a second—did somebody say Williamsburg? Several hipster jokes soon appeared in Gothamist’s comments section, but they were pretty sophisticated in their wit and cultural references, so I figured I’d break them down for anybody who might have been confused. You’re welcome! [photo]
