Do bourgeois hipsters love Petworth?

I read a very interesting article in the New York Observer about hipsters being proud of living or claiming to live in rough neighborhoods of Brooklyn. You can read it here.

I was talking to someone last night who said many “hipsters” from Mt. Pleasant have moved to Petworth. I am by no means a hipster, I am very hip mind you just not a hipster, but anyway I am very proud to live in Petworth for the positive attributes – beautiful neighbors, trees, houses etc. Are there people who moved to Petworth because it is “hip” to live in Petworth? Or is it a financial thing? I know I couldn’t afford to buy in many other neighborhoods 4 years ago. So talk to me about hipsters in Petworth. What is it exactly about Petworth that attracts hipsters?
