It’s a simple rule: nothing is cool forever. So, if Brooklyn isn’t cool any more what is? Queens.
When Gothamist asked,”It doesn’t seem like the press are trying to group all of the ‘Brooklyn Bands’ together as much anymore,” Yeasayer had this to say:
Chris: Because Brooklyn’s not cool anymore! Yeah, it’s going to be Queens next.
Gothamist: Or they’re slowly going to push the cool people out into the ocean. Or the poor people. I don’t know.
Chris: London is cool again.
Ira: London’s very cool.
Anand: FLO-RI-DA. Cool again.
The conversation took place at the relatively new Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, which if you have wallet for it has a cool rooftop bar.
