The magazine posted its list of the world's hippest neighbourhoods, and Queen West was second only to Tokyo’s Shimokitazawa.
The story that accompanies the list describes Queen West as a verifiable artery on indie patisseries, homegrown labels and hidden-from-view galleries.
In making the case for Queen West's hipness, the piece also mentions art hotels such as the Drake and the Gladstone, the Museum of Contemporary Canadian art and Graffiti Alley, "a block where street art is both 100 per cent legal and lauded."
