Someone in New York is setting ‘hipster traps’

From Reddit comes this amusing picture of a ‘hipster trap’ on the streets of New York City. Using PBR, American Spirit cigarettes and obnoxious neon sunglasses as bait, our waggish prankster is out to net himself a wild scenester. (Don’t worry — it’s population control, for the good of the species!)

It got Metro wondering, if this is a way to control invasive species, what sort of bait would you need to set up a trap in New York’s other neighborhoods?

Park Slope: One bushel of kale, one organic fair-trade childrens jumper.

Upper East Side: One pearl necklace, one gin & tonic, one pamphlet of yacht leasing information.

Fort Greene: One issue of the New Yorker‘s “20 Under 40” list, one unclaimed “Bored to Death” spec script.

Upper West Side: Two discount opera tickets, one copy of The Hypochondriac’s Guide to Life.

Soho and Nolita: One pair of white trousers (unisex), one pair of enormous sunglasses (unisex), one striped sailor shirt (unisex)

Isn’t putting people into boxes fun? How would you trap your favorite kind of New Yorker?
