Most Up and Coming Hipster Hood - WINNER: Long Beach. Another tough choice. There were only a couple of hoods/communities in the running for this category. Atwater Village and San Pedro being the other two. But we would actually leave LA city limits and go to Long Beach.
Commenters, though, kept it on the eastern tip. They added Boyle Heights, Lincoln Heights, Montecito Heights, Garvanza, Glassell Park and Cypress Park as the next hipster hoods. "Basically any immediate area around I-5 or immediately east of it."
One problem, at least for hipsters who want to move that way: These neighborhoods are not included in Rentslicer's markets. Since Rentslicer aggregates Craigslist rental listings, these hoods are likely excluded because they have little presence on Craigslist.
What, no Internet on the east side? Or just nothing in English?
