Further adventures in the NY Times obsessing over Portland

a couple of days ago, the NY Times ran an article about biking around Portland (here).

then just today, there was a review of The Nines (here).

And of course, we all remember the stories on gentrification and how "quirky" and "hip" Alberta street was becoming (both articles amusingly referencing some of the exact same things, but coming to quite different conclusions).

and soon, they will be running a story on the food carts in Portland. so why do you think NYC all of a sudden has this obsession with all things Portland? Is it just young hipsters who work for the NY Times and want to get paid to check out all the stuff they've been hearing about because they're bored of Williamsburg? Or maybe something else?

Thoughts? Opinions? Mom jokes?
