Murray Hill Hipster Update: Certainly Not

Regarding the Observer's reported sighting of Murray Hill hipsters, a Curbed reader emails, "Murray Hill hipsters? This can't be right. What's next, Park Slopers abandoning their Dansko clogs??" Thankfully, an email from the late, great Murray Hill blogger The IJC popped into our inbox seconds later to clarify matters:

As the self proclaimed mayor of Murray Hill I can confirm there are certainly no hipsters in MH. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that the author of the Observer article probably misused the word hipster as we would understand it. Probably more appropriate would be something like, "IJCs and the boys who love them." Hope that clears things up.
