Yelp has created a heat map thing that shows you where Yelpers use various words — such as hipster, tourist, hangover, frat, and more — to describe specific locations. So where the hipsters at? (Yelp has recognized "hipster" as an ambience since 2011.) Take known enclave of hipsterdom Austin, Texas (above), and its throbbing red tumor of skinny jeans and tattoos that spans Sixth Street on both sides of I-35, veering slightly north to encompass Franklin Barbecue.
Or New York City, below, where hipsters cannot be contained to one island (shout outs to what appear to be hipster outposts at the NoMad and Roberta's). Surprisingly, Portland's map is not all that detailed? Below, a look at Yelp's idea of hipsterdom in Chicago, Boston, Toronto, San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Philadelphia, Portland, London, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC. (Sadly, you can't search Paris for "hipster," and "très Brooklyn" wasn't an option.)
