Newsflash: Montrose is hip to the curve.

By | September 26, 2012

Forbes looked at over 250 neighborhoods in the nation’s largest cities and ranked the hippest based on walkability, number of coffee shops, assortment of food trucks, farmer’s markets, locally owned businesses and restaurants and residents who work in artistic occupations. Not surprising, an LA hood, Silver Lake tops the list, as does Williamsburg in Brooklyn. But, fear not Montrosians, we, too balance out the list at numero 20. Thanks to Lower Westhiemer‘s local eateries, rows of resale shops like Taxi Taxi and antique row housing the Westheimer Flea Market, our curve made the hip list.

Did we already know this? Yes, but can we please call it something besides the ‘Hipstrict,’ please?
