Intimation of Gentrification

When do you know that your neighborhood is dangerously close to becoming yet another hypergentrified hellhole?


The day you find a flyer offering a “Big Reward” for a stolen Dutch Modern chair, that’s when.

  2. Just thought I’d restore your faith in good old Greenpoint with this little gem: I was walking back to my building on Huron Street today at around 5:30 p.m. when I watched a woman hitch up her dress, pop a squat in the street in front of my place and pee in broad daylight in full view of several passersby. She was dressed like she was on her way to church. Marking her territory, perhaps? My phone had died or I would have sent photographic evidence…

  4. NICE. I too have seen an old Polish broad lift up her skirt and let ‘er rip. It was about 5 years ago on Manhattan Avenue. Right by a bus stop, no less.

Tell me what you're thinking...
