The Most “Hipster” Neighborhood In SF Isn’t One You’d Suspect

By Alyssa Pereira

The Mission District has become almost synonymous with the word “hipster.” Between the boundless amounts of flannel, beards, and hand-stamped coffee cups, it’s almost a parody of itself.

However, if this study is to be believed, the Mission isn’t some to the most hipsters in San Francisco. As a matter of fact, it’s not even close.

The Sun Times, (affiliated with the Chicago Sun-Times) did some legwork and created a map compiling data for the city’s cafes and yoga studios, as well as the amount of young people aged 20-34, and the amount of people who hold Bachelor’s degrees in the city.

Obviously there are a lot of flaws with the reasoning here. Everyone in San Francisco knows that any stereotypical hipster in the wild enjoys more things than coffee and yoga — craft beer, Bon Iver, quirky eyeglasses, caring about the Giants when it’s convenient, mustache grooming accessories, and bicycles, for example — but it’s still worth a look.

It’s pretty self-explanatory, but here’s the breakdown: the higher the number of things in the given category, the more “hipster” the area is.

Check it out below.
