CULTURE SHOCK: Pitchfork Media will be leaving its Brooklyn digs, WWD has learned.

The music-centric digital company, which was purchased by Condé Nast last fall, will be moving into One World Trade Center.

Condé Nast confirmed the news, but did not have details on the move-in date.

Pitchfork — which has a more hipster, Millennial vibe than the average well-coiffed Condé Nast title — will likely suffer a bit of a culture clash.

Even though it’s just over the bridge, Condé Nast’s gleaming headquarters, which overlooks the Hudson River, feels miles away from the tragically cool neighborhood of Greenpoint, where Pitchfork resides.

While the thought of Pitchfork staffers rubbing shoulders with Anna Wintour and her stiletto-clad crew at Vogue may elicit a few chuckles, those moments may be few and far between.

Pitchfork will be sharing the 40th floor with Condé Nast’s digital team, which is led by Fred Santarpia, the exec who orchestrated the acquisition.

Although it is too early to say, there are already some rumblings of potential renovations from the Pitchfork clan, who would like to make the maudlin corporate offices a bit more homey and on-brand.

Can you say beer-pong table?
