16. Old warehouses are new penthouses
You’re surrounded by warehouses, none of which have seen any actual manufacturing since the Carter administration. There’s a really awesome organic market/smoothie shop inside each of them, though.
17. Band names are poetic and/or ironic
You overhear a group of twenty-somethings in the booth next to you crowing about how Fleet Foxes, Sun Kil Moon, and Neutral Milk Hotel are just killing it. Nobody would ever admit to liking groups like Poison, RATT, or Bon Jovi, even if they sing their songs in the shower every day.
18. In general, people just act like idiots
Despite the fact that it’s nearly 90 degrees and sunny outside, you spot no fewer than five people wearing keffiyahs and knit beanies.
