Leslie Jones blessed the Upper East Side with a new anthem over the weekend: “The U.E.S.”
“Y’all say it’s boring. Y’all say it’s homogeneous. But y’all don’t know it like I do. This is the Upper East Side, bitches!”
Jones celebrates all the finest moments on the Upper East Side, like when “white men in khakis line up at Fairway.” She shows all the finest institutions on the UES: the Met, the Q train, an overpriced bakery.
And then she calls Kate McKinnon on the UWS to come have fun. But McKinnon would rather “stay home with my cat.”
Which feels about right.
Okay, so who’s going to write the UWS anthem?
