According to an article on the website for Travel and Leisure Magazine, Seattle is the “#1 best city in America for Hipsters”. As the article points out, this may or may not be a compliment. It is, in any event, the verdict of readers of Travel and Leisure, who ranked 35 cities based on what they call “relevant cultural features” (and no, I don’t think that they are being ironic, although I can imagine them using air quotes when saying “relevant cultural features”). Seattle came in #1 and next door neighbor Portland #2.
Regardless of your take on this distinction, I hope you will share my admiration for Travel and Leisure’s choice of photos to head the article (see above). Cafe Presse looks good whether they mean it in a nice way or not.
