Can someone let me know where the hipster shops are in Sunset Park? According to amNewYork, Sunset Park has "hipster joints open[ing] next door to mom-and-pop Spanish shops." It doesn't mention Happy Days or any of the 3rd Avenue "shoppes" in its list. Not even the bizarre Fiesta Fashion gets a nod. The list of stores includes the famous Mr. C's cycles, My Secret Place (no, no, not THAT kind of shop), and Keonoar Dos Sports. Apparently, My Secret Place - actually a used clothing shop - is counted as hipster. I guess I have to call it vintage then.
The article also mentions "mommies power-walk[ing] Bugaboo strollers that cost more than their neighbor's car." I guess I'm less observant than I thought I was. Which one is a Bugaboo?
It doesn't mention Irish Haven or El Tesoro in its bar/restaurant round-up. It does, however, mention Tacos 2004! Sex on the Beach can be had there.
Ah well. Check out the article here; do you think it is an accurate portrayal of the neighborhood?
