The number of FAILED sneaker boutiques is also indicative of the "success" of an area.

A few more thoughts on this...

I couldn't help but notice that #26 is Manhattan (and Now Brooklyn Too -- which makes sense now that they have an IKEA in Red Hook).

And the City of Portland (the new home of Jersey City's very own Janam Tea -- Tea is #13) just made it into his White People in the News column.

With Manhattan, Brooklyn AND Portland on Christian Lander's mind, do you think Jersey City and Hoboken (gasp!) are safely off this guy's radar?

Between our location in New Jersey (a state that can elicit obnoxious opinions from Americans near and far) and our close proximity to NYC (note that San Francisco is #91 but Oakland is missing), I think we may be able to quietly slip through the cracks.

But then again that may somehow just be what puts Jersey City right under his microscope!

Or worse yet, it could be #73 -- Gentrification!

That's a pretty funny site, I'm laughing my ass off at work. Thanks.


This JCList thread and Christian Lander's StuffWhitePeopleLike.com blog had me howling with laughter this morning (and, as a guy of Eastern European descent, I guess that makes me pretty darn white in most circles!).

It looks like his new book, "The Definitive Guide to Stuff White People Like: The Unique Taste of Millions" finally made its way into stores just this week.

What's even funnier is that Amazon has the book "bundled" in a special sale with a David Sedaris book. Why is that humorous? David Sedaris is #25 on Lander's "Stuff White People Like" list OF COURSE!

For the uninitiated, I've cut and pasted Lander's full list below for your giggling pleasure, but if you really want to have some fun, click here to see where the Canadian-turned-Californian blogger describes why each of the following made his list.

Once, we start seeing the tall, skinny models with their toy-dog accessories, then we will know that the downtown has finally arrived.

i do take my sneaker style seriously ;) but i don't think the success of a sneaker boutique will increase the success of JC... it would take more than that, higher boutiques in general as well as a good selection of bars, restaurants, lounges, etc... it seems that JC is on the move towards that and has been so for the past few years...

you also have to keep in mind that these sneaker boutiques can cause an increase in crime... the more people who rock high end sneakers, more towards the $250+ side, can cause jealousy to thugs who roam around JC and can rob you for those sneakers in a heart beat...
