  • Williamsburg is a neighborhood in the borough of Brooklyn, bordering Greenpoint, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick, and the East River.

We have been saying this for years, but now it's on Gawker so it must be true.

Gawker conducted a survey with its readers to find the world's hippest, richest, creative, youngest, poorest and coolest neighborhoods that are comparable to Williamsburg which is commonly referred to as Bushwick and Little Puerto Rico. Surprisingly, Tucson's Fourth Avenue and Lost Barrio were nominated, by their readers, not ours, as some of the "hippest" spots in America. Do you agree with this?

Should the Foothills be offended? What about Vistas? Sam Hughes is pretty cool, right? Who did they leave out?
