(As opposed to Brooklyn hipsters.)
The original hipsters: non-bike riding, non-beard growing, non-hoodie wearing, non-chubby chasing hipsters.
Males wear high-end jeans instead of levis. Females wear high-end jeans instead of frumpy thrift store frocks. Manhattan hipsters are generally more glamorous, and lead more glamorous lives, than Brooklyn hipsters. When "hanging out" in Brooklyn they will usually choose to do so somewhere south of Atlantic ave. as to avoid the dirty white trash heretics of north Brooklyn.
