WaHI Gentrification Watch: Brangelina Cometh?

New, 77 comments

In celebrity news we're still trying to wrap our brains around, Us Weekly reports that Angelina Jolie was "spotted checking out a nice building in Manhattan's uptown Washington Heights neighborhood Tuesday afternoon." Said a witness, "The building had work permits and it seemed like they were probably being remodeled for [buyers'] taste. The building is pretty fancy." Brangelina househunting in WaHI? Oh my. For reaction we turn to neighborhood blogger The Gay Recluse: "Does she know that Washington Heights is a metaphorical and literal graveyard of shipwrecks and resignation, from which most of us who are lucky or unlucky enough to end up here can never hope to escape?" So, uh, welcome! [US, TGR]
