Would Allen Ginsberg (the ultimate hipster in my book) be caught dead at Lenox Square Mall?

But Ginsberg was a beatnik - that's three or four generations removed from modern hipsters. Plus, he had originality and real talent - exactly the opposite of the hipsters that the OP wants to avoid.

According to this blogger, Columbus Ohio has a refreshing lack of hipsters. Kind of surprising to me considering its such a big college town.

I was going to say Kansas City and St. Louis as well.

Milwaukee does have it's hipster parts though, on the East side/Brady Street area. That area of Milwaukee was hipster before anyone heard the word.

So does Houston. A pretty sizeable chunk of the near-west side actually.

The Montrose neighborhood of Houston has been hipster since the '70s, although Houston does not have nearly as many hipsters as Austin, which is hipster heaven.

I don't think anyone, hipster or not, would move to Detroit. Plus, Detroit is not many people's idea of being a nice place. Neither is the fellow Rust Belt city, St. Louis.

I want to add Fort Worth, Texas. Nice city and metro area, but few hipsters, although recent commercial and residential construction in and near downtown has been attracting some hipsters. I may add Dallas, as long as you stay out of Uptown and Oak Lawn, which has a hipster population.

South Beach in Miami Beach has been neo-hipster for quite a few years. I always thought South Beach was the hipster capital of south Florida.
