    Can someone explain Bushwick to me? I have no idea what this place is, or why it is so weird that Marnie would be there. Help me. I’ve never been to New York.

      Basically, it’s this part of Brooklyn that has been infiltrated by hipsters. It was once all huge warehouses — there’s a Boar’s Head warehouse out there – but those are quickly being turned into expensive lofts as gentrification pushes out the families that have lived there for generations.

      The thing about Bushwick is that it’s a place where, if you are a self-proclaimed hipster (as in you actually use that adjective to define yourself), you live out there and “pretend” to be all artsy fartsy and original. You live in shitty lofts with bed bugs (Jamie’s piece: http://www.crushable.com/2012/06/18/entertainment/a-brooklynites-take-on-girls-brooklyn-locations/gallery-page/1/), piss on the sidewalk and call it art, and actually attend things called “hipster speed dating” ironically, but not really ironically, because hipsters murdered irony once it became a lifestyle.

      I used to date a fella over in the McKibben lofts (again, Jamie’s piece), it was disgusting, horrible, full of kids thinking they’re too cool for school and the day he moved out there was a goat in the hallway staring at him. I kid you not — a fucking goat in the hallway.

      Eventually the “kids” over there in Bushwick grow up, think it’s “too gentrified” and move over to Bed-Stuy (also Brooklyn), so they can destroy (gentrify) another neighborhood, although they don’t see it that way. I’m sure we’ll see that neighborhood in the new season of Girls now that the “girls” are “older.”

      So that’s Bushwick… I hope that made at least a bit of sense.

    Honorary Mention: when Shosh says that women should never have sex doggy style because it’s degrading and Jessa replies: “But what if I want to feel like I have udders?”
