Bushwick

Last year, five Queens cops were hurt trying to stop an onslaught by gang members who attacked them with brass knuckles, knives and a baseball bat, court papers state.

Even Bushwick's hipsters ran afoul of the Forbidden Ones, who had a clubhouse on the ground floor of a three-story loft building at 15 Thames St.

"My roommates said they got assaulted by members of the biker gang," said Wendy Scher, a 33-year-old resident of the building. "Two of them won't come back because they're afraid."

But other residents got a kick out of the outlaws.

"They're really nice guys. "They're really chill. I party with them all the time," said Alex Syner, 25.

But even the most free-spirited bohemian might have been uneasy to know that a two-wheeled cannon was loaded and aimed at the front door of the Forbidden Ones' lair, ready to fire at infiltrators, according to the prosecutor.

"The defendants wear the 'patch' to make it known that they are 'outlaws' who reject mainstream society and live outside the law," wrote Assistant Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Celia Cohen. [Daily News]

Does anyone else here party with them all the time?

Alex Syner probably goes to Grizzly Bear shows and blows guys in the bathroom. definitely not hanging with bikers.

I can see the relevance. Bikers in gangs are fierce outlaw degenerates, and people who listen to indie rock are mostly fey little pussies.

Alex was probably confusing them with the dudes from Wild Yaks, who are super awesome to party with.

"Even Bushwick's hipsters ran afoul of the Forbidden Ones"


"Even"??? LOL! How much more of a biased scarf can you get? Replace "Even" with "It should be blatantly obvious, but we'll just say it anyway just for shits and giggles..."

"Grizzly Bear shows and blows guys in the bathroom."


The former pretty much makes the latter obvious and vice versa.

Does Grizzly Bear appeal primarily to closeted male hipsters?

Both hipsters and bikers will be going to get their free sailor tattoo.

I don't party with them. I hunt them down like the scum that they are.

The band starlight girls lives in that building and throws parties sometimes. Surreal estate used to be there but they got evicted from tht space by the landlords, they were tight with the bikers though I think.

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2012 4:48 PM

"Surreal Estate" were tight with the bikers. I'm starting to question the toughness of this so-called biker gang. What are they like Charlie's Hell's Angels or something?

Posted by Bendrix | October 19, 2012 4:55 PM

I go to Guy's shows and blow Grizzly Bears in the bathroom

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2012 5:07 PM

Charlie's Hell's Angels... you've been waiting for YEARS to use that one, haven't you?

The two wheeled cannon: a modern gang with vintage stylings.

Perhaps an ode to bushwick?

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2012 5:46 PM

if you live in bushwick and you do not have a loaded two wheeled cannon aimed out the door you are just asking for it.

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2012 6:19 PM

those hipster-bugs come right in and infest everything if there's no cannon.

they are just silly hipster transplants from the midwest.

Wait, I'm confused ... who are we against in this thread?

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2012 6:58 PM

They were pretty chill dudes... Don't let the biker element make you pass judgment. These fellows made amazing hummus platters there.

I'd just like to mention that the Forbidden Ones just smashed Alex Syner in the face and knocked him out for a bit...I'd like to thank them for that.

Alex Snyder-Gentrifier from the midwest who listens to the latest shitty new hipster band is too cool.

I mean, I personally don't, but my girl likes to.

They made it clear to the real estate agent that a first floor clubhouse was imperative, they just didn't clarify to her why. Now she knows.

Suggested reading "Hell's Angels", Hunter S. Thompson. 1967 Hipster hangs with the Angels, real nice guys, they party all the time. Then gets stomped.

Theres about maybe 10 interesting metal bands who have been around for a while out 10,000 or so that pop up every 50 mints lately.

hipsters are cool with the biker gang, as long as they're a good source of drugs...
