    Outraged by the youth moving into rundown neighborhoods which before 1999 had mostly been populated by the poor, vicious fingers soon pointed to a group called "Hipsters" as villains worthy of hate. But who is this group and why do so many hate them? I've asked many people for a definition of this group, and why they are so hated? I especially asked those who openly expressed their hate, but even the haters couldn't give me a valid description that didn't also incriminate themselves and their friends in as part of this Tar Baby like culture. Over the years it seemed like I couldn't get a decent answer to my questions until now. Based on a panel held at the New School with Mark Greif, Christian Lorentzen, and Jace Clayton (DJ/rupture), n+1's investigation of the rise and fall of the contemporary hipster.

      Surely the New School of Social Science can teach us all we need to know about fun neighborhood enclaves.
