Artists mull the Wall Street-ification of Fort Greene

This week's Brooklyn Paper has an article by Dana Rubinstein on how Fort Greene is turning into Park Slope. Dana quotes Andrew Simon, a Fort Greener since 2003, who says, "Certainly when you walk around the neighborhood these days, between the baby strollers the Wall Streeters, the Subarus and the hybrids on the streets, it has a little more of a Park Slope vibe.”

LOL. We were one of those Wall Streeters, except we moved there in 2003, not 2007/2008. Does that make us any more different or more of an early-adopter?

why doea everyone hate strollers? Strollers carry babies, which happen to be the only source of perpetuation of our species out there.

i think fort green wouldn't have become the vibrant neighborhood it is today without a mix of socioeconomic classes.

I totally agree, 6:50, neither Ft. Greene nor Clinton Hill would be the dynamic nabes they are without the diversity -- of socio-economic class, of race, of ethnicity, of age, of sexual orientation, etc. Name another neighborhood in all of NYC with the same vibe. I only hope it is never pushed over the line into an adjunct of the psuedo-tolerant F trainers.
