"The hipsters never suspect a thing."

I have to say that it is very weird to open up the New York Times -- or in this case, load the homepage -- and see a picture of my loft. I mean holy crap! Apparently my whole neighborhood is not zoned for residency, meaning that I live in an illegal loft. This really isn't brand new information. I suspected it, but really didn't give much thought to it.

"Though many of the new residents seem genuinely unaware that the lofts are illegal, the shift is self-perpetuating. Building owners have begun to cite the changing streetscape to apply for zoning variances, according to Mr. Friedman, of the industrial retention group."
