These "what's the future of this neighborhood" threads are hilarious. If you opened a history book and read something about the history of this town, you'd see that no neighborhood remains static. They're always changing, as they have from Day One. Someone is concerned that (involuntary shudder) white people might move into Crown Heights or Harlem? Surprise! Who do you think was living there before the current residents?

Anyone who thinks that neighborhoods around New York City aren't going to change is either in serious denial, incredibly ignorant, or had something in their morning coffee that probably shouldn't have been there.

I would say Flatbush could be the next up and coming. Crime is towards the east side of flatbush ave, but west of Flatbush ave has great potential. Restaurants like The farm on Adderly, Mimi's Hummus and others along Cortelyou rd is great. Go there on a weekend and you see young couples and mothers pushing baby strollers around. The Historic Colonial neighborhood is also beautiful, and the train station is close by. Prospect park isnt too far also!
