Stuyvesant Heights Gentrification Watch

New, 8 comments

This Old House's annual Best Old House Neighborhoods list has a shout out to brownstone Brooklyn, but the choice of 'hood may surprise: It's Stuyvesant Heights! According to the mag, "This culturally rich nabe is shedding its high-crime rep as restaurants, bakeries, and cafes open their doors to new and longtime residents, all of whom want a distinctly Brooklyn lifestyle for themselves and their families." Cafés and a flattering magazine write-up? We just need one celebrity couple to be spotted house-hunting for property values to soar 200%. [This Old House]
