Ever wondered what Brooklyn real estate pundits and their minions talk about during a $125.00 a head breakfast? Well, gentle readers, the wait is over. Thanks to an anonymous tipster I have a twenty page transcript of yesterday’s “Brooklyn Renaissance” breakfast at Industry City. It is quite something. “Innovation Alley”, anyone?
UPDATE, October 1st, 12:43 PM: For those of you who may be interested in listening to an audio transcript of these proceedings, here you go!

I have grown to be a connoisseur of “street penises” over the years. Placement really is key. I would hazard to guess this person has spent a lot of time looking at penises. Possibly his own.
