What The Hills did for Los Angeles, The Bedford Stop may do for Brooklyn. The Bedford Stop is a YouTube reality show about four young women living in Williamsburg. The pilot episode shows Brooklyn—a New York City borough with a population of over 2 million—as a gentrified paradise filled with nice apartments, brunch spots, and white girls. But there's a sliver of darkness in one of the girls, "Olena." She may be the loudest one, but no one seems to really hear what's she's saying.
In the pilot, the women living in Williamsburg are depicted doing fascinating Williamsburg things like…
Thrift store shopping:
(Apparently grammar and spelling aren't strong points at the Bedford stop; the show's subtitle says "who's" when it should be "whose.")
Talking about fall and winter fashions:
Complaining about New York City prices at brunch:
Getting professional headshots for Tinder and looking for true love:
Okay… Well, they figure out what to do for the night, and act really insensitive about last year's Ebola crisis.
Then they complain about "best" friends:
Yeesh. Her friend is luckily there to support:
Or not. Oh boy, the friend just wants to bowl.
