It's mostly from different forms of social entitlements either being inheritance or jobs they can't do that pay at least 40k a year that their relatives or friends have influence in..

I worked at a really good union job once that had them, and they all knew people and if you didn't "help" them you'd end up fired because who they knew..
Beards and trucker hats are a redneck thing too, I don't think they're going for a hipster look. Rednecks are probably more likely to have beards than hipsters

The "hipsters" hanging out in Williamsburg are those either masquerading as hipsters when not working in their $100k jobs, or still living off mommy and daddy's bankroll, or those few legitimate artists/hipsters who managed to secure a living situation deal somehow in Williamsburg, but hang in Bushwick.

Personally, I've never liked Bushwick, aesthetically. It fell to such low, tough time "ghetto" ranks in the 1970s/80s, and was fueled by drugs, gangs and rats in the 90s, that the early 2000s slow revitalization and continuing today, feels less hipster and more developer-pushed.
But I suppose that is true with all hipster neighborhoods. Ultimately they become more and more developed until rent is too high for the hipster/artist population, then the "new" hipster neighborhood is ushered in.


ha would a LuLu Lemon place it out, if so then Fishtown is ixnayed, mayber Est Kennsignton then

Rednecks don't live in gated communities..

I grew up in the South East the beard thing is like seven-years old and came from the Von Dutch hat thing..

I would also argue that rednecks went extinct with the middle class. People who sold their inheritance and shop at Cabelas and Trader Joes and Starbucks aren't rednecks.. Neither are metal and rap fans who live in trailer parks and drive primer Hondas and know every drug dealer in a fifteen mile radius..

There are similar cases with other cultures too that are basically extinct

Wicker Park is much closer to being Lincoln Park 2.0 these days vs Chicago's hipster capital. That crown passed long ago.

I'm not a hipster at all, but Marigny/Bywater is known as an especially hipster part of New Orleans. The scene there doesn't seem as pretentious as Seattle or San Francisco.

In Puget Sound, the ones with more money live in Capitol Hill, the ones with less live in urban Tacoma. Both have their ups and downs
