Ft Greene in the New York Press
The blogosphere is all over the new Brooklyn issue of the New York Press. The Fort Greene article is written by a Nicole Davis, who seems to be a writer who specializes in Fort Greene. Among other tidbits, she goes off on the usual bit about gentrification:
There are frightening signs of change, of course, like the atrocious Greene
House condos and the “children’s clothier” on Fulton selling designer threads
for tykes—a sure sign of strollers to come. But some things are changing for the better. Whereas once there were days you couldn’t find a lemon in the local Associated, there is now fennel, Odwalla and Annie’s Organic macaroni and cheese.
We say: fair enough that you don't like the Greene House Condos (we certainly do), but the organic groceries come with the territory. Who do you think is buying the organic Annie's-- people living in the Walt Whitman Houses? No. It's the much more-monied folks moving into the $800K condos.
