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.
