Gentrifcation Watch

Sometimes gentrification may have a more complex backstory than we give it credit for... but sometimes, there's just a bunch of bars, restaurants, and boutiques opening up in an area once written off as no man's land. The part of Bed-Stuy east of Malcolm X Boulevard is one of those places, attracting a crop of trendy new businesses as well as swooning real estate brokers and their proclamation that, for now, you can get brownstones for under $1 million. There will also be an outpost of developer Boaz Gilad's Brookland Capital (he of the horrid proposed church-to-condo conversion). Yay? [WSJ; previously]
