No one is confusing Grand Prairie for Portland, Ore.
But apparently the two cities are polar opposites, at least in terms of hipster-ness.
A study released this month by Move Hub, a moving research website, listed Portland as the most hipster city in the U.S. (and the 2nd-most in the world) and Grand Prairie as the least.
The “International Hipster Index” factored five things into the rankings: the number of vegan eateries, coffee shops, tattoo studios, vintage boutiques and record stores per 100,000 residents.
And only cities with populations of at least 150,000 people were included in the study.
Worldwide, Grand Prairie wasn’t dead last, checking in at No. 443, ahead of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain; Messina, Italy; and Gelsenkirchen, Germany.
The top city on the list – the only one to out-hipster Portland – was Brighton and Hove, England, a city of about 270,000 south of London.
Austin was highest-ranked Texas city at No. 55. Dallas was No. 72 on the list, while Fort Worth was No. 143.
