    "I see racism in the market": Brokers get candid on race in a new study

    https://www.brickunderground.com/liv...ts-segregation

    Other brokers described only showing white people apartments in predominately white or gentrifying neighborhoods. One agent who works in Crown Heights called it "the next big thing," and said of recent changes to the predominately West Indian and Jewish neighborhood, "It’s just literally going [east] block by block. You have Flatbush, Vanderbilt is so hot, oh my God. And then Washington is great now. Franklin is okay, maybe Rogers."

    On the one hand, the neighborhood's longtime black residents provide a sort of authentic backdrop, according to the broker: "They [clients] like to walk out of their apartment and feel like they’re on a Spike Lee set. They like the real Brooklyn."
    I remember us talking about this recently.

    It really is the most vivid example of gentrification i've ever seen. Downtown brookly slowing spreading east through all those black neighborhoods that only had black and hispanic faces in the past is now littered with white faces. It really is a site to see. Just walk down Nostrand avenue from eastern parkwar toward downtown brooklyn.

    I know someone who picked up a brownstone down there for 200K around the early 2000s...its now worth more than a million. I kick myself every day that i didn't pick up a property in that area years ago.

    I hath 9 and 90 tribulations and nary a one doth concern a wench!

    Nothing new here, most Blavks in these area are just stupid to make them come in and take over !



    I think am I of about 5 blacks that live in my Condo building on Eastern parkway !

    About the rentals, these prices in Crown Heights are unbelievable , I don't see white being able to mentain this pace for too long, a lot of new building are vacant, they can rent them, way too much money they are asking !

    i dont know if it will crash though.

    because let us say Amazon comes to newark.

    They still 45 mins - 1hr away from work, 15-30 minutes away from the city. is a vibe for them.

    The tech sector is not slowing down
