LESCHI -- Tensions are running high in this 'hood, as a couple is remodeling their house to be 4-stories and tower over neighboring homes. To make matters worse/better, they homeowners are really sticking it to the man by flying a red, white, and blue banner telling Obama to "kiss their booty."

COLUMBIA CITY -- This weekend, GreenHouse Apartments will welcome its first tenants into this newly built urban agricultural building. This is particularly significant for the neighborhood, as this 'hood hasn't seen a new apartment building since the Nixon Administration.

ON THE INTERWEBS -- Hipsters abound in both Seattle and Portland, rendering it nearly impossible to determine which Pacific Northwest city reigns supreme. Luckily, Estately created a handy-dandy infographic to help break things down and more definitively determine which town can be redubbed Hipstertown, USA.
