Oh hey Millennials,
I hope you’re reading this on your phones because that’s like what you guys do all day, right? Aside from TINDERING like 24/7. I, too, am a tech-obsessed millennial, it’s true. I mean, I’m taking a #selfie right now! JK LOL #sorrynotsorry. I watch GIRLS and invent apps and throw around the term Basic Bitch like it’s no big deal. What’s Sex in the City?? I’m too young to even get that reference.
Anyway, seeing as how Business Insider is our go-to publication for dating advice and foodie culture and like, political strategy (?), I guess you’ll be joining me now in Greenpoint #blessed, seeing as it’s the number 1 place for millennials to live in all of AMERICA. No one knows if we’re 10-29 or 20-34, but age is just a number, right? Greenpoint is #winning because there are like, a ton of other young people and coffee shops, which is awesome because people older than 34 weren’t in high school in the 90’s, so they totally don’t get irony. Good thing there are only a few of them here in Greenpoint.
Business Insider says that G-Point is “slightly safer and cheaper than neighboring Williamsburg.” But only slightly! JKJKJKJKJK But actually, it’s not that cheap. Yeah, you have to get a job to live here, even if you’re a recent college grad #UGH. They say median rent is $1,157, but that’s kind of an underestimate (um, just look on Craigslist or tumblr #theworstroom #tbt #obsessed). I mean, unless you share a room with your boyfriend in an apartment with 2+ other roommates and you all use one tiny ass bathroom with no tub, which is what I do. #stillblessed
Also Business Insider incorrectly stated that the median income for Greenpoint is $31,703, but that’s actually the number for all of NYC. They clearly don’t have a millennial working on their millennial-themed stories ’cause they totes would have caught that error? The household median income in Greenpoint is actually $62,470, which seems kind of high, right? It’s about 10k higher than the National Average. But I dunno much about finance, which is weird since I read Business Insider so much.
See you around. For brunch??? xoxoxoxoxox
