"This is only bad news for developers, brokers and condo owners who expected to make a quick dollar out of the recent real estate boom. Since moving here 4 years ago, the types of businesses and demographic has changed and there are amenities that were not here before. Harlem as a luxury enclave? That was a far fetched selling point. Harlem as the Brooklyn up north? That is really where this is all going to since there is open sky, brownstones, history and young, creative types moving in everyday to this affordable and revived neighborhood. Doorman demanding, condo princesses need not apply. That also applies to the finance people that messed it up for the rest of us also. Never saw you and never missed you."
