A New List Ranks the Most Hipster Neighborhoods in Each State – Maine’s Probably Won’t Surprise You
Dictionary.com defines a hipster as "a person who follows the latest trends and fashions, especially those regarded as being outside the cultural mainstream." So what's the neighborhood in Maine where you'll find them hanging out the most?
The folks at BuzzFeed put together a list of the most hipster neighborhoods in every state. The town should be obvious for Maine, because let's be honest. How many hipsters do you see in Hiram?
Portland is the hipster capital of Maine, but where do they gather the most according to BuzzFeed? Munjoy Hill.
BuzzFeed uses Tandem Coffee as their example saying "Tandem Coffee in Munjoy Hill is possibly the most hipster coffee shop, ever." That may be true, but we have two issues with this.
1. Nothing is IN Munjoy Hill. Here in we Portland, we say things are ON Munjoy Hill.
2. The Tandem Coffee location that BuzzFeed refers to is on Anderson Street, which really is a bit of a stretch to be in or on Munjoy Hill. That's more in the Bayside neighborhood than Munjoy Hill. If Anderson is on Munjoy Hill then everything on the hill would roll down to it.
We do agree thought that Munjoy Hill pretty much trumps every other location in Portland for hipsters and definitely all of Maine.
