"East Austin does as much as any neighborhood to keep Austin weird, where struggling artists rub shoulders with moneyed professionals, and weathered shacks juxtapose lofty new condos." - Thrillist

The neighborhood, now a true hot spot, has managed to retain its roots in art and the local community. There are few gems like this left in the world. With the help of Nextdoor.com and Walkscore.com, Forbes compared 250 U.S. neighborhoods, ranking them based on walkability, coffee shops per capita, food trucks, locally-owned bars and restaurants, number and frequency of farmers markets, and those working in artistic occupations. The results? Austin — "East Austin" to be more specific — ranks No. 7 on the inaugural list, and is one of the few that doesn't live on the East or West Coast.
