Marrickville has been named the tenth coolest neighbourhood to live in, according to Time Out’s 40 Coolest Neighbourhoods in the World survey.
The hip Sydney suburb nabbed their top 10 slot because of their balancing act between the new residents made up of creatives, artists and other kooky characters with the original population of families and community groups. Marrickville was also praised for it’s affordability despite close proximity to the expensive CBD.
The magazine determined their final list by asking citizens worldwide to rate their favourite suburbs on community spirit, food, drink, nightlife and culture. Esquerra de l’Eixample in Barcelona topped the list, closely followed by Downtown, Los Angeles and then Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong.
Yarraville in Melbourne also made the list in 5th spot. You can view the world’s coolest neighbourhoods here.
