This Is the Williamsburg of Your City: A Map of Hip America

This Is the Williamsburg of Your City: A Map of Hip AmericaS

What is your city's Williamsburg? What's its hippest—or formerly hippest—or sometimes just youngest—neighborhood, the one with the art galleries and the boutiques and the lines for brunch? (And what, for that matter, is its Bushwick, or "Next Williamsburg"?) If you don't know off the top of your head, don't worry. We do, thanks to the collective knowledge of Gawker readers.

A few months ago, we asked you what "the Williamsburg" of your city is. Today, we present to you the results—tabulated and mapped.

Below, you'll find the definitive list of "hip"—or formerly hip and now just rich—neighborhoods in major metropolitan areas in the U.S., Canada, and around the globe. All neighborhoods were nominated as answers to the question "What's the Williamsburg of your city?," and then dutifully recorded and tallied over the next 24 hours by Gawker editorial assistant Sarah Hedgecock (her Williamsburg: Blue Dome).

Disagree? That's fine. Tell us what we got wrong below the post.

You can see a full spreadsheet of results, including vote totals and runners-up, here.
