There's a city in New Jersey that is full of hipsters. As a matter of fact, there are more hipsters in this local than any other town in America.


First let's look at what qualifies as a "hipster." used this criteria:

  • Young people. Hipsters can be any age, of course, but they're more likely to be between 20-34.
  • Education. A high percentage have a bachelor's degree.
  • Cafes. Where else would you debate the best IPA?
  • Yoga studios. Apparently hipsters and yoga are BFFs.

Asbury Park? Nope. Didn't even make the top 20.

Hoboken is the top U.S. city for hipsters. Let's break it down.

  • Population: 50,929
  • Percent aged 20-34: 47.2%
  • Percent with a bachelor's degree: 73.5%
  • Yoga per 10,000 residents: 1
  • Cafes per 10,000 residents: 13.1

Are you surprised? I'm not. People are fleeing to Hoboken from Brooklyn due to the insane housing prices. For example, the average price for a condo in Hoboken is $590,912. Compare that to $1.5 million in North Brooklyn, according to The New York Times. 1.5 million!!

So there you have it. The flannel flies the highest in Hoboken.
