Postin' pics on your blog
Takin' rips of that bong
Bout to move to Los Angeles
Cause you sick of livin' at home
Shop at Urban Outfitters
All your other clothes are straight vintage
Tie flannels around your waist
Wearin' boots and panties in the winter

Can't make people from Cleveland too happy though. I would have assumed that Pittsburgh and Atlanta would each have a poster. I would guess the list above is not complete, but still a good list.

Kudos to Minneapolis/St. Paul for placing 2nd on that disposable income list after DC, too!
The artist who makes these posters I believe started out in Chicago, but maybe she is from Des Moines originally? We have the Minneapolis, St Paul, and Chicago posters in our living room.

I searched for the Cleveland poster. No luck. However, I did find: Toronto, Austin, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Manhattan, Brooklyn, London, Paris, Madison, Twin Cities, Portland, Seattle, Boston, Des Moines and Denver.
Didn't know posters make cities trendy now...

You've got it backwards. Trendy cities get posters. The posters don't make the cities trendy.

The trendy cities are also the cool, hip cities that get frequent shout outs on Atlantic Cities.

I don't get how cities like Detroit are trendy. Yes, the downtown area might be trendy, but every somewhat big city has a trendy neighborhood.

If I had to name the top 5 trendy cities to date, it would be: Austin, SF, Seattle, DC, and NYC in no particular order.

Well, as someone said before these cities can be trendy all they want, but if you're not in Tech or another high paying job, you're likely with 3-4 other roommates barely making it, especially SF and NYC.

But if you're trendy, the high paying jobs and everything else will take care of itself.

That's why I don't understand why Reading, PA doesn't install streetcars. I mean, of course people don't want to move to your city. There's no streetcars. Duh!

How can Chicago be that high when that city's unemployment rate is so high?

Bogus list. I would think DC, all of the Texas cities, Denver, Minneapolis. Places where there are jobs are where melinnials are going to thrive.
