Three local businesses get a nod in a recent Buzzfeed list that highlights the most hipster neighborhood in each state.

Corktown is bustling – and it seems there are new openings all of the time, as well as the real estate market there is heating up and has a very local, handmade kind of flavor.

The three businesses that got a shout-out were Astro Coffee, El Dorado General Store, and DittoDitto, an independent bookstore.

The El Dorado General Store is Detroit’s one-stop shop for hipster-ish things, like succulents, crystals, vintage clothing, and locally-made goods. Also worth browsing isDittoDitto, and indie bookstore that holds regular artist talks and group readings. For brunch food and coffee, head to Astro.

Here’s the complete list of all the states. Is there a neighborhood near you in Michigan they missed?
