And so, nouveau blogger Kensington Brooklyn's takes a look around and offers a take on neighborhood development. A taste:
On my afternoon walks with the dog I've stumbled upon new development after new development rising with for sale signs (and usually the listing agent is Corcoran). Some of these new developments are better then others and some just blow my mind with their complete inappropriateness (Simone and Park Circle). I guess I just wonder why any of this is even needed when there is beatiful building after beautiful building down Ocean Pkwy that any of these rich buyers could toss in 50K to make a sick apartment and maintain the integrity of the block. Putting aside the buyers for a minute I get the sense that many developers hear Brooklyn is booming and come to dig and make a buck.Say it ain't so.
