Diversity of everything, diversity of goods sold.
Of course Hasidics don't count, but much of the demographic changes in the area were mainly contributed by the Hasidis and not by the Hipster Yuppie Transplant from Ohio and Indiana. I was just saying. Bed Stuy by Pratt is the only part that is nice, especially around the G train stops and not to far From Lafayette with the A train, Plenty of nice homes in that area. Once you go further East in the Bedstuy it start to gets depressing and I have visually walked in Bedstuy a couple a months ago and I noticed this. Hopefully the demand for Brownstones with character can change things, but Bedstuy is still very hood, I remember reading a PDF about how Bedstuy has plenty of child abuse.

^ Next time in bed stuy, I'd recommend walking around these areas rather than the quasi-hipster part to the northwest.

Gentrification has pros and cons to it. Pro side of things is that improves vitality of inner city urban living with more street life, cafes, lounges, restaurants, yoga studios and ethnic dance workshops. These slums become highly desirable and increases the demand for space and property value goes up. The con of gentrification is that it does remove a neighborhood ethnic character which is bound to happen. Another thing is economics, gentrification forces longtime residents to move out, by raising property taxes or rent imcreases, most of these people being working and middle class folks who pay the brunt of taxes for the city, many end up moving out to othrr counties all together. Gentrification is good for the city for the short run but it's not sustainable in the longrun. Trends and fads change like example the back to the city movement is in full swing now but will this trend be around in the next ten year enticing young white college grads to move to Boston, NYC, Chicago, SF, snd. Property values go up and also down. With gentrification I have seen and witnessed more poverty and more income inequality. Trickle down effect is a huge failure.



Plenty of them.



Lol. Hell gentrification cant even save Detroit, but guess what gentrification can't save NYC either. NYC has plenty of debt in the billions which will probably never be paid back. Eventually NYC needs to pull its self from pending doom in s generation or so. The city needs to build a new middle class to suistain its self, but that wont happen anytime soon until the wealthy hands over much of its wealth back over to the masses.
Yeah I read somewhere that Jersey owes like 120 billion dollars in future liabilities. They don't owe it now but they will in the future sometime. They make about 28 billion a year. Taxes are killing everyone in the north. Especially the northeastern states. That's why everybody is moving to Florida.

But from what I understand, wouldn't it be Riverdale, Bronx, NYC,NY? I never called bed stuy "bed stuy, NY". But if that's what people in Riverdale like to do then that's fine by me I don't care lol. But it's alright if you are ashamed of the bronx, that's fine. There's plenty of people who hate where they're from. And they have a right to. I didn't like bed stuy or harlem. I don't care about going back there at all. Like I said I haven't been back to NY or any state out of florida since I moved here.

Jacksonville is mostly suburban sprawl. Nothing really urban about it. The downtown is a complete ghost town. Some parts look promising, like the riverside section.

Desirable parts of Florida are far from affordable.

Depends on what you see as desirable. Or affordable. If you want to live in Fort Lauderdale or Miami where all the superstars live then yeah that's definitely far from affordable for most people. You really jist have to choose the right spot. Theres plenty of affordable places down here. But I rarely see anyone who's actually from Florida where I live. They're all from NY and NJ. The people who live across the street are from Livingston, the people next to them are from hoboken I think and the people across from them are from Staten Island or mount Vernon I always forget which one for some reason. It's crazy how many northerners live here.

Generally speaking, desirable in nyc these days is being in manhattan south of 110th st or walking distance to the subway that can take you there in a reasonable amount of time. In Florida, desirable locations would be by the beach.
