According to Susan Stabley of The Charlotte Business Journal:
"What is the top hipster neighborhood in Charlotte? It’s a tie!
"Gawker polled its readers to determine which neighborhoods were the “hippest.”
"Two Charlotte neighborhoods — NoDa and Plaza-Midwood — tied as the Queen City’s version of Williamsburg, according to the online daily Manhattan media news and gossip site.
"Williamsburg in Brooklyn, by the way, is what Gawker identifies as “a global icon of hipness,” while Bushwick is considered the “next Williamsburg.”
"Both NoDa and Plaza-Midwood also tied as Charlotte’s Bushwick. Which could be interpreted as meaning that both neighborhoods are currently cool and will become the trendy places to live. (Sorry, South End. No mention for you.)
"There's an argument to be made that NoDa was hip long before "hipster" became a thing.
"The north Charlotte neighborhood rose in popularity as the host of Friday night art crawls during the 1990s. Today, it's the home of several brew pubs, music venues and the ever-popular 24-hour Amelie’s French Bakery. Many of its former textile mills and industrial buildings have been converted into apartments and retail shops.
"Meanwhile, Plaza-Midwood has risen as one of the more desirable neighborhoods in Charlotte because of its diverse selection of bungalows and brick homes. Its Central Avenue has an eclectic mix of shops, including tattoo parlors, pawn shops and clothing stores.
"But the biggest attraction has been a cluster of dining options to please most foodies, including Bistro La Bon, Peculiar Rabbit, Soul Gastrolounge, Zada Jane's and the Diamond."
NoDa.ORG says: Way to represent, 28205!! We'll take compliments for NoDa and for our brothers from another mother down the street Plaza Midwood. Cheers!
NoDa's been called "Gritty and Grungy" before (and we liked it)! So... what do you think about being called, "hipster"?
