Benn Ray of the Hampden Village Merchants Association talks to The List about Hampden’s listing in Forbes as the 15th hippest hipster neighborhood:
America’s Hippest Hipster Neighborhoods: #15. Hampden, Baltimore, MD
“Home to the annual “Hon Fest,” where women tease their hair in 1960s-style beehives, Hampden embodies retro cool. Bars, restaurants and independent coffee houses co-mingle with two-story rowhouses harking back to the neighborhood’s days of mills and factories. Every year the neighborhood celebrates Christmas with a “Miracle on 34th Street” decoration spectacle in which residents adorn their abodes with thousands of lights.”
