We wuz robbed! Travel + Leisure released their rankings of the 37 most hipster-friendly cities in America and Chicago came in at number 14, behind New York AND San Juan, Puerto Rico! Apparently we don't come across as kooky enough all by ourselves, but outsiders' perspective of Ukrainian Village / Wicker Park seems to have saved us from dropping off the list completely. To wit:
For the coolest neighborhoods, check out Ukrainian Village, which has both a literary and a diverse community, or Wicker Park, which has bookshops and lounges, as well as the city’s best Victorian architecture.
Want even more proof these chumps have no idea what they're talking about? There's not a single mention of Logan Square! Or Pilsen! We deserve to be higher on that list, dammit!
