There was a time not long ago when the Irish were seen as a major force in the Manhattan real estate market. Hell, entire buildings were built just for them. Now the Times has a fascinating report on the current influx of Irish into the city, and they're not here to invest. One economic collapse later, they're in search of work and taking up residence illegally in Irish enclaves lilke Woodside, Sunnyside and Maspeth. What, no Five Points? [NYT]
