Lol. Hipster Highway (Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago) now has some of the highest rents in the city.

Or Iowa City for crying out loud, or many other area on that list.

There are legacy areas on the west/south sides of Chicago and northwest Indiana that suffered from "rust belt" decline, but it was just a slice of the actual city and metro area.

Those "Hispter" areas, which is a terrible list, for the most part never had anything to do with any "rust belt" sides of Chicago's metro area.

I can't speak for other cities but in the case of Columbus I think the author used the term "hipster" to refer revitalized/thriving urban districts rather than grungy, affordable, eclectic neighborhoods.

I've always associated Hipsters as the New Yuppies. That's what they are like here in the Eastern Midwest/Western Northeast. They are all stereotypical neighborhoods meant for the wealthy elitists who would never admit they are wealthy elitists. There has to be a brewery, vegan cafe, ethnic restaurant (usually Thai), and coffee shop on every block. All extremely overpriced and overhyped. All have the same look and clientele.

Regarding Dayton, I think the Oregon might be a little rich for the Hipster crowd, but they'd be right at home in South Park. It has a gritty edge but is gentrifying, and it's near the university. That said, after viewing some of the interiors of homes for sale in the Oregon, maybe? Yellow Springs is a village and college town way outside of Dayton, so I'm not sure I would call it a metro neighborhood, but Hipsters would definitely feel comfortable there.
