Williamsburg's Downfall

New, 7 comments

The Observer thinks that the end of Williamsburg is just around the corner, following CINDERS gallery being priced out of the nabe after their rent was increased $1000. In addition to the this, the final straw seems to be the arrival of Freeman's, to which the Observer says "there is something so well-groomed-rugged, so putting-on-airs, so SCENE about Freeman's that it can't help but be seen as the third horseman of the apocalypse — first being the 2005 rezoning, the second the actual construction of all those awful condos. What will be the final rider to finish off the neighborhood?" Strong words! Any thoughts from the locals? [Observer]
