Williamsburg Is The New Park Slope (Brooklyn Heights Is The New Williamsburg)

"The workers at the Rosarita Fish Shack in Williamsburg were surprised to see a couple pushing a crib on wheels down North Seventh Street on July 4.

They were further stunned when the couple asked if they could push the crib up to one of their sidewalk cafe tables and have their child hang out in it while they ate brunch."

Yes. Yes. Amazing. Do not miss their photo.

In a surprise transition, the babyness of Williamsburg is increasing exponentially while what we could consider "smart young hipsters" have been moving to Brooklyn Heights, which is simultaneously, and surprisingly, de-babying. GOOD LORD what's next.

'"We welcome babies," Karrell said. "All our biological clocks are ticking."'

I 100% support this and anything else that makes me look more normal as a parent.

Isn't this what those retractable toddler leashes are for?

I thought "Maison Premiere" was the baby's name.

@ejcsanfran I thought Cheyenne Vesper was a cocktail.

I'm equally disturbed by one of the article suggestions in the "Around the Web" section on this page: "Have You Been Missing Out On These 32 Vegetable Soup Recipes? " In a world of things to miss out on, vegetable soup in not high on my list.

There's a surfing-themed bar in Williamsburg that has sand on the floor??? Supposedly intelligent, hip grown-ups go there?

@LondonLee "a cowboy-inspired restaurant"
