Check out this article on the young people in their 20s and 30s moving into Bedstuy.

Bed-Stuy

The article says Northwestern Bedstuy is predominately white. For those of you screaming its all real estate hype, yesterday on the A train (I went to the Rockaways to take pictures), I saw a majority of white people on stations like Nostrand Avenue on the A, Kingston-Troop, and even a fair number at Utica Avenue. So Gentrification is moving in that deep into Bedstuy. There were no white faces at Ralph Avenue, but that is on the border of Brownsville.

Now, granted, a lot of white people around say Utica Avenue doesn't meant that part of Bedstuy is white full of whites, but it does mean they have a rapidly expanding population there.

Utica is pretty much the cutoff. The areas east of Utica Avenue are still too rough for the "urban pioneers." When I see them getting off at Euclid Avenue then we're in trouble.

Sixfold from a small base. If it grows sixfold again, then you've got a stew going.

Most of the growth of whites in bedstuy is the hasidic Jews. We spoke of this during the 2010 census results.

No, not at all. Again, you're going into extreme denial. Read the article again. Most of the white population in Bedstuy is 20-30 somethings. I lived there, and I saw it myself.

Northwest Bedstuy is majority white. And not Hasidic Jews. Young, out of town whites who couldn't afford Williamsburg.

I was surprised to see East New York apart of that list. I not too familiar with the area but from I understand its basically on of Brooklyn's "last frontiers" in terms of gentrification.

Last year I visited ENY, plenty of new housing fedders style were built. Plenty of poor people who got priced out of partd of Brooklyn moved to ENY.

No its not. I know western bedstuy is full of young whites from the midwest around Pratt university. Some bars here and there. But we covered the growth of hasidics on cd alresdy on bedstuy. This is old news, nothing to cheer about unless you are a property owner or Transplant.

Not just around Pratt University do you find a lot of out of town whites. Also in the areas around Nostrand Avenue on both the G and the A, and along any of the parts of Bedstuy along the G train (the closest parts to Williamsburg), and the parts along the A near Clinton Hill.

Its always good to see more people move into an area who have jobs and who have better spending money.
