Plaza Midwood and NoDa tied for the most hipster neighborhood in Charlotte, according to Gawker.

They were trying to figure out "where the self-consciously arty creative-class would-be bohemians congregate" in America's cities. 

So they were looking for the equivalent of two hipster neighborhoods in Brooklyn, New York. 

  • Williamsburg: "an expensive alt-yuppie neighborhood—it used to be the neighborhood where the cool young arty kids went; now it's the neighborhood where the rich old arty kids go (and live)"
  • Bushwick: "where the cool young arty kids go and live now."

But the six people who responded couldn't make a decisive decision ...

P.S. In Raleigh, the analogy was Williamsburg: Boylan Heights as Bushwick: Mordecai.
