I came across this article Stylist’s City Guide: Cool Neighbourhoods yesterday when I was going through the Stylist website. I never take this free magazine when it’s thrusted at me on a weekly basis because I assume it’s not very good. However, I found the article very useful, having read it twice and tweeted it too. I’ve also been to a few of the neighbourhoods – Brixton, London; Nørrebro, Copenhagen; Gastown, Vancouver; Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro; and Sheung Wan, Hong Kong – and look forward to checking out the others on my next trips, including Red Hook, Brooklyn, Monti, Rome and Beyoglu, Istanbul.
I hope you find this useful too and would love to hear from you if you’ve got other cool neighbourhoods to recommend and share.
