What Is A Hipster?Culture, Jungle Buzz — By JGM Staff on May 11, 2012 at 1:57 pm
Does anyone really know the true definition of what a hipster is? We’re stumped too, it’s been said in NY that what characterizes a hipster is: dirty clothes, nerdy glasses, and rich parents. Even the people with those characteristics listed still don’t call themselves hipsters, that is almost like the highest insult to a person now-a-days. People have grown an everlasting hate for the “hipster”, but still no one even knows what one is or what the word means, so how do you classify one? Lorena Gaillot, a French citizen who moved to NYC last year wasn’t familiar with the term, so she also tackled the subject by visiting the hipster mecca of the world, Williamsburg, Brooklyn to find out.
