Interracial family settles on South Portland Avenue

A Korean woman and Caucasian man from the West Village move to South Portland Avenue in Fort Greene. Along with their four young biracial children, they discover that Brooklyn ain't so bad after all..

After selling their coop on Bank Street for $1.9MM, they purchased this beautiful 4-family less than a block from the Park.

Most insane comment in a pretty insulting article: their comment that there are black people here who aren't nannies.

Incredible!

that did perk me up when i read that, but i don't think anyone took offense to it. if anything, just shows how small-minded they were, coming from the west village..or maybe it was taken out of context.

I agree with you JP. So what, there are no black people in the W. Village who aren't nannies?!
I'm a long term Clinton Hill resident and a broker. I take offense to that comment. Gee thanks for "discovering" Ft. Greene...

Actually, if you read it again, it's pretty clear they're making a comment about the West Village's lack of affluent black residents. It's not a comment indicating surprise at black Ft Greene residents who happen to be black, but indirect disdain for the lack in the West Village.

I understand though, if you're looking to find fault, this would be the easy way to go.

You know, I went back and re-read it because a lot of people said they read it as being ironic. I think that might be right.

That said, I'm a little smart (not too smart, but a little bit) and if I read it the wrong way, good chance others did too. Irony is hard to find in NYT articles...
