I guess I would add for Syracuse the Armory Square and Hanover Square portions of Downtown. For Rochester, probably Park Ave, Avenue of the Arts and Monroe Ave.

Minneapolis isn't part of the rust belt, and they got some of the neighborhoods wrong. North Loop is more yuppie than hipster, St Anthony is a suburb full of old working class white people, and Uptown was hipster from the '80s to 2005 or so but isn't any more. It is possible they are going with the bourgeois rather than bohemian definition of hipster. A better list that tends towards the latter: Northeast, Powderhorn, Whittier, Dinkytown, Seward, Stevens Square, Lyndale and Kingsfield.

Real hipsters can't afford to move to the "hipster" parts of town.

This is very unhipster-like, uncool, and too mainstream.

Most hipsters cannot afford Kerrytown or South Main in Ann Arbor. Sure, they hang out there all the time, but to live there? Maybe if they have five roommates or something. Rents in those areas are prohibitively high because of their location adjacent to the central campus of the University of Michigan, and a condo above one of the shops or restaurants on South Main St. can cost upwards of $1,000,000 or more to buy.

Agreed, though, that you would be hard pressed to find a city with more hipsters per square mile. The place practically oozes hipsters and hipster wannabes who think that they are being unique by conforming to all of the other hipsters.

Most hipsters aren't real hipsters. They are conformist clones trying to fit pre-conceived stereotypes, often being supported by well to do parents. The real hipsters are currently living in affordable, under the radar locations that aren't making any lists.

Parts of Chicago's south and west sides have slipped quite a bit since their peak manufacturing days, but by and large the region is not dependent on manufacturing in the same way Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, etc. were/are. Definitely helps though.

Thought this was an interesting read as well. http://www.chicagobusiness.com/artic...rished-chicago

Wouldn't the bulk of these cities fit that description?
