Downtown Vs. Uptown: Which City Crowd Is Cooler?

On tonight’s City premiere, much time was spent making the uber important distinction between NYC’s uppity uptown girls (like socialite and close, personal friend of Manolo Blahnik, Olivia Palermo) and downtown ‘fedora-wearing’ hipsters (like Whit’s non-committal, guitar strummin’ love interest, Jay Lyon).

Now, we don’t like labels one bit, so we’re not going to tell you that our eyes bleed every time we go above 14th Street, or that Bergdorf Goodman‘s cosmetics section gives us hives. We will tell you, however, that not all of these geographical stereotypes ring true. Not all Upper East Siders dress like Gossip Girl characters and throw fancy dinner parties with placeholders. And not all Lower East Siders suck at relationships and could benefit from a haircut. Still, you can’t be in two places at once…

We want to know where you’d rather hang. You tell us: Uptown or downtown?
