A heat map of hipsters in New York City according to Yelp Worldmaps. - 

Yelp has taken its stash of restaurant, bar, and retail review data and put it to work. Yelp Worldmaps, a series of heat maps across 11 different U.S. cities, show the geographical density for search terms "hipster," "pricey," "tourist", "yuppie," and more.

Here at Marketplace, we thought we'd take an (unscientific) look at the correlation between hipsters and money. Here goes...
