On Friday, the Times ran an article in its Style section called “Creating Hipsturbia in the Suburbs of New York” and it contained a few errors. With our apologies, please find the corrections below:

“We were the we’ll-never-leave-Brooklyn types,” said Ms. Miziolek, 36.

But faced with overpaying for a Brooklyn home that would barely contain a life with two young sons, they decided to look northward. “When we checked towns out,” Ms. Miziolek recalled, “I saw some moms out in Hastings with their kids with tattoos. A little glimmer of Williamsburg!”

should have read as:

“We were the we’ll-never-leave-Brooklyn types,” said a dumb fuck, 36.

But faced with no longer being able to fully indulge her cultural fetishism and finance her family simultaneously, Ms. Miziolek said she checked some towns out. “I saw some moms out in Hastings with their kids with tattoos. A little glimmer of Williamsburg!” said the middle-class woman using visual cues as an indicator of perceived interpersonal compatibility, picking up the torch of culturally-suppressive suburban tradition right where her parents left it.
