Baltimore has worked to lift up artists, providing arts districts, entire buildings to paint on, and festivals to show some of their stuff like the recently-passed Artscape. So it’s no surprise that we ended up on Thrillist’s rundown of top cities for creatives that aren’t New York, LA or San Francisco. But instead of being about art itself, this list is about cities that having stuff that artists want.
Amid the praise, Thrillist might be adding a little misunderstanding of its own.
We all know that truly cool people don’t rely on website lists to tell them what’s hip. But the rest of us might be interested to hear that Thrillist has decided that Hampden is one of the 12 coolest neighborhoods in America.
