Donald Trump is already projected to win the state of New York—but who cares about that? The Democratic residents of Williamsburg certainly don’t. But among in that liberal wasteland, the battle to be crowned the GOP king by dozens-ish of conservative hipsters still rages on.

It’s still anyone’s game (maybe). Stay tuned.
Update 10:07 p.m.
Cruz seems to have secured South Williamsburg, which boasts a relatively large Cruz-friendly (but still hip!) Hasidic population.

Update 11:30 p.m.
The battle for Williamsburg proper is heating up, with Trump and Kasich just two votes apart.
