I was one of the early gentrification recon scouts across the no mans land of Broadway to the east (dominican) side...lived at Thayer and Sherman 2011-2015. The street noise/all night domino party/sport bike gang scene was too much for us and we fled for quieter pastures, but others will follow and someday that block will be won for people who sleep at night.

That can only happen once they get all of the deadbeats out and raise the rents to what they should be.

How was the rat situation when you were living up there? Any noticeable infestation in the streets at night?

Mainly for residential on residential, and even then, cops dont usually show up and do something about it.

Inwood is a small hood, it will get gentrified very quickly.

That neighborhood’s charm has always been the Dominican culture. Take it away and it becomes a very boring area. Hope they can successfully resist.

I lived up there a decade ago and I loved it. Part of what made it fun for me was the Dominican community there. However, that neighborhood has been around for a while including well before it was a Dominican community and it’s pretty difficult to know how charming or fun that neighborhood was in the past for a comparison. After all, the area over a century ago had a large amusement park and maybe that was charming and fun.

When I was growing up, it was mostly Jewish and Irish, then during the 1990's Dominicans started to arrive en masse. But the neighborhood has always been ethnic.
