Yuppie vs. Hipster

Comment from the Gothamist

What bothers me is the constant confusion between “yuppie” and “hipster”. They are in no way one and the same. The hipster is well, I don’t need to even go into it…and the yuppies are the young professionals with the marketing or wall street or IT jobs…they follow their own flock of sheep…a very different (dare I say cleaner and better groomed) flock from their trucker hat counterparts.
The only thing the two groups have in common is that they’re willing to pay the crazy rents.
