Boston Globe recognizes Somerville’s hipness

The Boston Globe is beginning to catch up with the breaking news of March, 2013 on the carrierussellbooks blog!

Here’s my take: Somerville named hippest city in America

And the Somerville Scout: Yes, it’s hip to be square in Somerville

And, apparently, others have been noticing hipsters in Somerville for a while: Ten Years of Hipster Citing in Somerville

I have to admit, I thought I was just being a little silly writing about Somerville hipness. Obviously, I’m not hip enough to recognize a real (and, apparently troubling) trend when I see one.

I get the gentrification and displacement concerns, but why all the hate targeted at young adults on bicycles?!
