The New Potato Teaches Laura Brown How to Be an Upper East Sider

Real estate people keep making the argument that the Upper East Side is totally happening — but if there’s anyone who can make us believe that, it’s Harper’s Bazaar executive editor Laura Brown.

Brown, perennial downtown girl, is a recent UES transplant in search of local haunts. In this charming video from lifestyle blog The New Potato, Brown goes from Barneys to The Stumble Inn to figure out how to fully go native.  Watch as she gets evicted by Simon Doonan, scares off Kelly Rutherford with her Gossip Girl fan worship, and learns the finer points of beer pong in a frat bar. Just like a real Upper East Side girl.
