Gentrification in the Bronx has started but they greatly overexaggerate it in its current state. I even went through the so called "piano district" and it doesnt look all that much different from 10 years ago. Alot of what your hear about Bronx gentrification is what developers wanna accomplish within the next 10-15 years. Some of those projects have started already but as of 2016 gentrification in the bronx is in its infancy stage.

Bus lane on Penn ave? erm maybe......Id put one there before i put one on good hope or southern ave.....have you driven on those strips? Cars can barely drive down those strips now and a bus lane would create more congestion. At most id put bike lanes on those strips.

And MLK already has frequent bus service from multiple lines serving it.

I agree about Mott Haven, I've been there a few times recently and it doesn't seem to have many visible signs of gentrification.

I always thought of Brooklyn as NYC's imitation of DuPont Circle.

Park Slope maybe. Other parts of Brooklyn not so much. Brooklyn Heights reminds me of Georgetown. Bed-Stuy reminds me of Shaw. East New York maybe Anacostia. Bensonhurst maybe Brookland. Much of Brooklyn bears no resemblance to any DC neighborhoods. DC doesn't have anything equating to Williamsburg or Greenpoint that I can see.

I've noticed zero gentrification in the BX, then again only been there at night time so hard to tell.

I'd say much of Bed Stuy reminds me of Shaw/U Street corridor. As far as East of the River DC, only Anacostia I could see truly gentrifying like BK. Oh and Congress Heights as well.
