Are These the Next 15 Hot Cities?

No, we're not talking about climate change - this list from Business Insider imagines which U.S. cities will be the best cities to live in in the future of 20 years from now.

Brooklyn, New York starts the list, an easy bet given it's current popularity. And truly there are few surprises, except perhaps the inclusion of Pittsburgh as "the next hipster haven":

"With its affordable housing, thriving student population, emerging arts and hip-hop scene, and fast-growing job market, Pittsburgh is quickly becoming the newest hipster haven.
The Steel City is attracting and retaining these young creative types with its cool cultural scene and thriving economy."

The slideshow is followed by reflections by a handful of experts on where millennials will choose to live 20 years from now. Dr. Stan Humphries of Zillow also places his bet on the handful of mid-sized cities that make up the list:

"My best guess is that the biggest winners in the housing market two decades from now are going to be small- to mid-sized cities, some close to larger metros and others more distant.
"Small and mid-sized cities are poised to do well over the next couple of decades."
Specifically, I'm talking about communities like Austin (TX), Savannah (GA), Athens (GA), Rochester (NY), Boulder (CO), Madison (WI), Knoxville (TN), and Spokane (WA)."
