Williamsburg Squatters Attracted By Plaid?

We've read all about the gutter punk invasion of Bedford Avenue, but how about some reaction to the neighborhood newbies from first-wave Williamsburg gentrifiers? Writes FREEwilliamsburg: "Ew. Can we fumigate? Given the excess of crusty-ass beards and plaid in the neighborhood, it's no wonder they feel at home." And FREEdubs directs us to this long Williamsboard thread on the topic, filled with tales of street fights and doubts over the punks' credentials ("If you 'quiz' them, they invariably can't even name ONE dystopia song.").
