Buffalo NY: One of the Next Hipster Cities, per Austin

Austin is known for its hipsters. So naturally it knows what hipsters like. It would also be probable that Austin would have a good idea as to where the upcoming hipster cities are located. According to the Austin Culture Map, Buffalo is one of the up and coming hipster cities. If you just watched the video that we posted on Apartments at The Hub, it’s not hard to see why.


From Ruin Porn to the Allentown art scene, with pressed juice bars, scattered art installations, urban farming, Infringement, farmers’ markets, bike pubs, VegFest, a lively Indie music scene, graffiti murals, craft cocktail bars popping up left and right, festivals… festivals… festivals…, a Toast Bar, The Art Barge, low cost of living, kayaking, chicken coops, Buffalo Scooter Company, beekeeping, DIY trend, LaSalle skate plaza, yoga studios and yogi festivals, Social Bikes, yarn bombing, burlesque, charcuterie, Porchfest, anti GMO rallies, Park(ing), hula-hooping craze, Pub Crawler, roller derby leagues, vinyl stores making a comeback, food truck rodeos, The Slow Roll, craft breweries and distilleries, and mustache competitions, Buffalo just might already be there…
