Los Angeles.

It's developed a bad reputation over the last decade or so for various reasons, but I think it's well on its way to becoming trendy again.

Cheap shot, I know. Here's what I really think: Detroit has a lot of potential but it obviously has a lot of issues as well. It will take time to recover, so I'm not sure it will be the next trendy city, but I think it will be trendy at some point in the future.

They gotta do something quick because they can easily attract the yuppies and hipsters from Toronto and Chicago. Plus the Detroit - Chicago High speed rail may really help

As a relative outsider (i.e from different part of the country) looking at it, I see no way Detroit is the next, or even the next, next trendy city. Sorry. Doesn't mean it can't stabilize and be a place some people go and like to live. But not the next trendy city. Kansas City, Portland Maine, Boise, Albuquerque... all those seem more likely.

I thought LA's been trendy for some time though--especially in areas like Los Feliz and Silverlake and more recently Echo Park and parts of Hollywood. I mean on the West Coast, people tend to have a more favorable idea of Los Angeles these days (at least among people I know who are well travelled). It seems to be in the rest of the country where people still just associate LA with the old stereotypes(smog, gangs, crime, traffic, sprawl, etc..).

Kansas City looks promising. They're really pushing the creative class concept.

Unfortunately, the creative class types may not want to move to a state which seems to elect more than its share of social conservatives to power.

Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Cleveland, St. Louis, Santa Fe, and Sacramento are the next round of "happening" cities.

Because of the late 1980's through early 1990's baby boom, any city that becomes trendy could see a large increase in population relatively quickly.

That's why Pittsburgh or Buffalo could surge. The housing stock is already in place.

Around here the most trendy neighborhoods are the ones that were most down in the dumps 30 years ago. So it is not inconceivable that Detroit get revived at some point. When you can buy a house for a few thousand dollars that will appeal to the starving artists.
