People from places like Williamsburg and Crown heights keep moving East and South, gentrification isn't only going on in one neighborhood it's happening on all fronts. Sunset Park, Midwood, & the rest of Flatbush is already seeing it. To the north Ridgewood is already in it and now that even the far east ends of Bushwick, Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights are commanding high sale/rental prices the next neighborhood is ENY, this rezoning will just speed it up in a few years.

Don't bet on Sunset that's a done deal, bet on Bay Ridge, Woodhaven, East Flatbush, and the South Bronx. They may not see the same level of gentrification but there will be a huge demographics change within the next decade if things continue.
You hit the nail on the head. I love it how the same people who harp on areas like Brownsville and ENY being "far" from the city are the same ones who've never ridden a train from here to Manhattan lol. You mean to tell me an extra 1-7 stops from Crown Heights is going to make such a drastic difference time wise? LoL give me a break.

Because, while you may live there, you don't own it. The people who do would love to rent it to whites, because they pay more.

Scott Stringer is engaging in bald and bold laying ground work for a future mayoral run. As such one must view everything that comes out of the comptroller's office in that light.
