Regarding this morning's item on skyrocketing real estate prices in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a Curbed reader emails:
Minsky's an interesting character? He's THE power broker out there. I'm in contract to buy one of his listings in Clinton Hill, which, I would argue, is the New Hotness. Bed Stuy has pockets of beautiful townhouses, but there are too many areas that are blighted with shitty new-builds from the last 30 years and derelict tear-downs to ever have the consistent beauty that a landmarked 'hood like Clinton Hill has. Clinton Hill has the potential to be Brooklyn Heights in 10 years, Bed Stuy, no way.
