Apparently, Williamsburg youth (still classified as "hipsters," because everyone is too lazy to come up with a new term) have a hard time remembering to close their bags!!!! Someone please help these poor, innocent souls!!!!
According to DNAInfo, Williamsburg bars and police have joined together for a month-long social media campaign called #OutSmartBK to teach safety tips to younger residents, who are apparently too often deceived by their neighborhood. Topics covered include personal property, public transportation, dating, bike riding, and elevator safety. So, basically, how to be a human. Yay, taxpayer dollars!
The campaign, which began July 10th and runs until August 3rd, has an Instagram account featuring tips like "don't forget to zipper your purse" and "take your keys out before you arrive at your door." It also has several posters that say things like "I am Brooklyn" and "We are Brooklyn" followed by the strangely worded "We Go #OutsmartBK." Okay, okay, we go do it!
