Someone managed to make an entire song about Williamsburg without including the word ‘hipster’

brooklyngirlsVirginia native Catey Shaw’s new song Brooklyn Girls takes place in Williamsburg (and a little bit in Bushwick). “There’s a palace of bricks in 11206 where all the fly Brooklyn chicks reside.” While I give her an incredible amount of credit for not putting the word ‘hipster’ in the chorus like everything else ever made, the song/music video is of course still full of standard Williamsburg references like:

– The L Train
– Graffiti
– Dudes with beards
– Combat boots
– Sitting on a stoop
– Listening to Jay Z
– Brooklyn Nets hats
– More graffiti

But hey I’ll admit the song is pretty catchy. Listen below via Gawker:

  1. But these girls aren’t brooklyn girls. She is a Virginia Native. They are only temporarily here until they grow up.
