Forbes, a fancy magazine known for putting together lists of Americans who can afford the most yachts and Russian stripper pool parties, has decided to take up ranking “America's Best Hipster Neighborhoods”. Now, this isn't the first time some faltering magazine put together some
pointless asinine list about the best places for hipsters, however, it's maybe worth nothing that the Mission has moved up from from third place to second, meaning we only have to open one or two more coffee shops until we're the best place to not give a shit in America.
“What we love about The Mission is the amazing diversity and lack of pretense in this historically hip neighborhood,” says Dabney Lawless of Nextdoor.com. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and food trucks abound in San Francisco's oldest hood. It also has the largest concentration of street art and building murals in the city.
Of course, you're probably wondering who beat us. (You are, right?) Shockingly (or not), Williamsburg finished behind us in third—Silver Lake in LA took the top prize.
