Williamsburg: Your Ship Has Come In, Manhattan Transplants

Remember how the waterfront Schaefer Landing was going to "kill the desirability" of Williamsburg? What we failed to realize was that the new residents will be so busy jaunting off on their New York Water Taxis - soon to be stopping so conveniently outside the condo complex - that they won't have time to ruin the Brooklyn neighborhood where the rest of the peons trod.
