What is your city’s Williamsburg? What’s its hippestâor formerly hippestâor sometimes just youngestâneighborhood, the one with the art galleries and the boutiques and the lines for brunch? (And what, for that matter, is its Bushwick, or “Next Williamsburg”?) If you don’t know off the top of your head, don’t worry. We do, thanks to the collective knowledge of Gawker readers.
This is pretty accurate for Milwaukee… Eastside to Bay View?
I disagree. I love Milwaukee, but comparing it to New York CIty in this way is a bit silly. Plus, I wouldn’t put much stock in the data. The sample size of Gawker submissions for Milwaukee seems to be 11.
Yeah, I thought their Chicago and Detroit assessments were half wrong, and the St. Louis result must be based on the opinions of like three people who live way out in West County.
Gentrification and the role of hipsters in it are both very very real, but this article is sloppy. I mean hell, most cities have multiple fronts of gentrification going on at once. It’s not just some simplified “Man the bars got fancier in literally one place in town, so many years ago that I finally noticed.”
