Look at the last one, almost 600K - on the Concourse, in pending contract....
Still nothing to go crazy over. Is gentrification happening? Yes. Is it on a large scale yet there? NO. Believe me, I'm down there and I've seen the changes. It isn't there yet. Still tons of quality of life issues. Too much supportive housing, projects and homeless people. If anything, it's the increase in homeless people there that has been the most noticeable.

You people act like I'm saying the south Bronx is fully gentrified. You can stay in denial if you want to you. How fast or slow its happening, we can debate about that all night. Facts are facts, which is its changing. They said the same crap about every other gentrified neighborhood years ago. Bedford Avenue used to be one of the roughest stops to get off on the L train back in the early 90s. Matter of fact, even taking the L train was not the safest thing to do.

bluedog can tell you himself about how the Upper West Side was back in the day, it was the hood....stack up some money and move into a Mitchell-Lama if you make under 100K and want to stay in NYC. Best advice I will ever give. bax, come speak on Rochdale one time for me! BoogeyDown, you too! And all from the Masaryk thread, come chime in....

Hell, I think the Bronx is even experiencing the first serious migration from more than one borough...I hear in the Internet streets a lot of new people in the Bronx are coming from Brooklyn and Queens because they were priced out...

What's annoying is you showing listings on the Concourse. The city has poured TONS of money into the historical area of the Concourse. It is only natural that prices would go up there. They have been for years now. There's nothing new there, just that more people are moving there because they know it's safe, and the buildings are historical. However, the sidestreets are just as dangerous as ever. I was just down there last weekend. Points north of 165th are still ghetto as ever, even on the Concourse. Tremont is still Tremont and scary as ever.

Its only a matter of time before those side streets will have Fiats parked on them.....if I really had to make an educated guess, streets like Sherman, Sheridan will look like Inwood west of Broadway by the time I'm a grandfather...and Inwood west of Broadway will look like the Upper West Side....and the Upper West Side will look more like the Upper East Side...

Not only do some lack comprehension skills, but they thrive on ill fated excitement and use very little logic whatsoever.

essentially you're saying is that the entire city will be gentrified one day.

People who can afford will stay and those who can't will go.

And?

LMAO! Listen the Upper West Side is about as expensive as it gets. I know a family that pays over 6k a month for a walk up. It's on the top floor and the building was gut renovated and done nicely (Bosch washer and dryer and all high-end stainless steel appliances) but it's still a walk up. I would not pay such a price without an elevator.

Of course the bronx is changing, the whole city is. Just like it has always done for as long as people settled here. You aren't making any profound statements. You act like you are curing cancer by proclaiming the bronx is changing. But you selling the Bronx like its the cream of the crop needs to stop. You don't live here, you aren't hear daily you do see what residents see.
