Like it or not, hipsters are changing the face of our nation's cities. It's almost impossible to walk through some neighborhoods these days without tripping over a single-speed bike and falling into a cart of kale, or worse, a vintage clothing store with an aggressive section of pre-cuffed skinny jeans.
But the fact remains, a developing neighborhood hasn't truly reached peak gentrification until the hipsters themselves have been priced out -- by, you guessed it, the yuppies. (No, it's not 1985 again. But, yes, we are bringing the word back -- spread it!). Sure, ordinary folks may not be throwing the term "yuppie" around anymore, but affluent young professionals still exist; and where they go, so go the high-end furniture shops, luxury pet grooming services, and sanitized streets paradoxically filled with both gas-guzzling SUVs and eco-friendly hybrids.
In order to help you avoid them (or figure out where you’re moving next), we've identified urban zones where DINKS (yep, we're bringing that word back too!) and their modern-day ilk hold the greatest sway -- these are the nine yuppiest neighborhoods in America.
