Culture on the Cheap
Live Like A Hipster King!
I have become magnificently obsessed with the illegal hotel hostel at 249 Varet Street. I’m serious. I almost want to go down there and spend the night so as to assure myself the New York Loft Hostel is, indeed, for real. When I find advertising copy like the following (from hostelworld.com) it only fans the flames of my burning curiosity.
Ten minutes to Union Square? From Morgan Avenue?!? What the hell are these people smoking? But I guess time doesn’t matter if there is no curfew. That’s what being a “Hipster King” is all about!
You know, when my husband and I eloped we never had a honeymoon. We just ate lunch at Fernando’s Foccaceria, hopped on the G train and went back home. Methinks an extended conjugal visit at the “Mixed Dorm Ensuite”* is just the thing to put the fire back into our marriage!
*With shower/toilet facilities in room. Showers (be they yellow or otherwise) for the masses! Hallelujah!
