The fact that you didn't realize that means that you should not be qualified to speak on these matters since you clearly know very little about this city. Just trying to keep it real.

So all those neighborhoods had just as many condemned buildings and empty lots?

Plus, I didn't say that Bushwick and bed-stuy have been gentrified, their just not the hell holes that they were when you lived there? Coincedence?

Washington heights and LES were major drug markets back in the day. If Washington heights has improved as much as people say it has then it definitely has to be them. But I'll believe it when I see it.

The problem is there aren't enough hispters, or enough jobs that employ well to do people to expect to use hipsters to change every NYC neighborhood. Plus many hipsters leave the city in a few years. Plus a lot of the ghetto people do work. They work in jobs like retail, and someone has to do these crappy, minimum wage jobs. So basically, a good part of the city will always be ghetto.

that's your comeback... you're slipping g-dale... and also with every new post you only continue to show your ignorance... please quit before you make a complete fool of yourself... Point is, if you look at Bushwick/The entire Bed-stuy area aesthetics wise, demographics speaking, housing wise, median income, household income, schooling, and any other number of socio-economic factors, the level of change can be considered minimal when compared to a host of other areas throughout the city and especially in many Manhattan areas, and other areas in North Brooklyn and central brooklyn...

Oh it's happening in my mom's neighborhood. It's a double edged sword in my opinion. It's good that there is more police presence, better stores popping up and all. The downfall is that rents are increasing for everyone. My mom lives in Morningside Heights and she their rents are rising and rising. Pisses me off. Let me keep going with my little rant lol. It is better for the community, but for someone like me that grew up there when I go to hang on my mother's block and we sit outside on a Friday night and have police called on us because we are "too loud" or for whatever reason it makes me want to go back to my ghetto days and beat the crap out of them. You can't come from downtown to a place you can rent for 1/2 off the rental price and then try to change it up. Rant over.

One of my good friends who used to work with me at a large investment bank left to go to a very respectable fund in Greenwich. He isn't making millions yet but it seems like that potential exists if he were to do well and move up there. But that's really easier said than done--if it was easy then everyone would do it!

Didn't your mother teach you how to behave in public? Disturbing the peace is not cool. Its this kind of behavior that created a backlash against poor people in the city (and yes, not everyone is guilty of that). If you need to talk to your friends, invite them to your place or you go there's.
