Hipster Demography and Gentrification

Parochial xenophobes and hating hipsters at Pacific Standard magazine.

Theme: Ironic migration.

Subject Article: "We Found Where The Hipsters Are Coming From."

Other Links: 1. "Nothing to stop skinny-pant set now that anti-gentrification blog is gone."
2. "The Sources Of Brooklyn's 'Hipster' Influx, Revealed."
3. "The Rise of the Cupcake Class."
4. "Scouting Out the ‘Girls’ Hotspots."

Postscript: Using Census data, more (much more) people aged 25-29 are leaving Brooklyn than moving to Brooklyn. Brain drain!
