A tipster, Aimee Bianca, sends in this photo with a question: “This is the Arab-owned deli/newsstand in my hood. Was something lost in translation?” The tiny deli, at 168 7th Avenue, used to be called the News Room, but the magazine selection wasn’t exactly in Kinfolk territory. (More like Southern Living). Our source confirms that there’s “absolutely nothing” hip about the Hipster Deli, so Williamsburg can rest easy for now. We’ll let you know when they start stocking White Label mate soda.
In the meantime, a person who answered the phone at Hipster Deli declined to be interviewed about the name change. Fuggin’ hipsters!
