Yea, I think so, too.

Some possibilities are to move some municipal and borough jobs out of Downtown Brooklyn whose property values have skyrocketed and out to Broadway Junction. City and agencies can maybe rent out their buildings to operators for private leases and then use those funds to purchase and build job sites there and try to partner with private developers and businesses to also develop the area.

I've worked out there with in an ersatz film studio facility out there, so maybe there's also something possible along that route.

Pros and cons man, pros and cons.

Start with selling 210 Joralemon to a residential developer, and moving all the city agencies in that building to Bway Jct

Imagine what a condo at 210 Joralemon would be like, and they could maybe do an upscale vegan restaurant on the first floor

Ah, for the days of yore. I lived on UWS in the early Sixties when it was a slummy, dangerous neighborhood and you still needed roommates to share the rent if you were just starting out.

I think the OP should avoid NYC like the plague, because you gotta have the ability to eat mud and tell yourself that it's chocolate pudding if you want to survive there.

I should probably add that I loved it, but I think the gentrified NYC sucks.

In some ways, awesome! We need more people to advocate for the insane cost of rent/real estate. However, I'd like a bit more realism in those arguments. I'm fairly sure there are still 2bds, and maybe even a few 3bds that are below $2k in Bensonhurst at least.
For sure.
You can rent a 2 bedroom in Midwood for $2000 a month or less
