Where is Detroit's Williamsburg?

According to a very unscientific search of a Gawker Article's comments section, both Corktown and Midtown are Detroit's Williamsburg. Congratulations Hamtramck, you are now Bushwick. Here's how the voting broke down:

Perhaps this poll suffers from low turnout. Though more likely the problem is in the premise and the Brooklyn-centric world view it represents. Sure, there are hip folks in Detroit in addition to up-and-coming/up-and-came neighborhoods. But I don't think anywhere is really like Williamsburg.
