Ugh, Bushwick

New, 2 comments

Gawker wondered yesterday whether the insufferably cool Bushwick might be "over," and while it seemed outrageous at the time, all things considered, the appearance of a "Parkour Gym" on Bogart Street has everybody second guessing the once illustrious neighborhood. Because the only thing that can make parkour—a "sport" where Europeans run around on top of buildings, which every American middle schooler thought was really awesome in 2005—even more cool is doing it indoors, in a padded room covered in clearly delineated graffiti tags.
