From what I've read NYC is losing its creative population (artists, etc) to more affordable cities. Since this is part of what makes NYC, well, NYC, some may bemoan that fact as well. There was actually an article I saw the other day about giving artists a subsidy (but not enough to make a difference, really) to encourage them to stay here for precisely that reason.

I know that there were a few apt complexes (one in Hell's Kitchen area) that offered artists affordable housing though they may be gone by now.

What do you think about this? Do you agree? Do you care? Do you think losing NYC's artists, who often "bring up" an area (and, unfortunately, can contribute to uber-gentrification down the line) is a legitimate concern?
