Boston ranked as good place for hipsters

Boston is one of the best places in the country to wear skinny jeans and listen to music before it’s mainstream.

That’s right, the Hub ranked number 17 on a new list of best cities to be a “hipster.”

According to Travel and Leisure’s new list of “America’s Best Cities for Hipsters,” Boston brings a lot to the square-rimmed glasses wearing table, although it fell close to the end of the list of 22 spots around the U.S.

“Boston may not seem very edgy to T+L survey voters,” according to the survey’s results. “The techie crowd around MIT and Cambridge, however, gave a boost to Beantown’s hip quotient.”

Basically, Boston is only full of hipsters because they overflow from across the Charles River.

Travel and Leisure also points out the Voltage Coffee & Art café in Kendall Square, calling it a place to see “up and coming” bands.

Which, in hipster terms, is loosely translated as “groups we knew about before you.”
