Hub's Hippest Locales; Shelter-in-Place Cost

New, 1 comment

HUB-WIDE—Guess which city was No. 1? "We based this hipster list on each town's number of colleges per resident; percentage of renters versus buyers; percentage of hybrid cars versus non-hybrid cars; the number of Trader Joes, Whole Foods and Starbucks per resident." []
HUB-WIDE—Galen Moore notes that Friday's shelter-in-place order may have not cost the region anything monetarily: "The Boston-Cambridge-Quincy metropolitan area had an annual gross domestic product (GDP) of $326 billion in 2011, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. But that doesn't mean the city lost $1 billion, even though it ground to a halt for an entire April Friday." [Biz Journal]
