Quicklink: Poles Flee Greenpoint!

C writes: Saw this on my greenpoint feed. Translation is spotty, but interesting read on EU acceptance of poland and its effect on greenpoint, and the change in demographics from a Polish perspective.

I agree: this is an interesting read. Although the translation is a bit awkward at times, the point more or less gets across. Above all, I (and I suspect I speak for many of my fellow Greenpointers when I write this) want to know is where these folks found a studio apartment for $1,000 a month. I haven’t seen one of those in years. Check it out!

  2. There was an article about this not too long ago in some local press outlets. Found one: http://thenypulse.com/2009/11/18/in-foundering-economy-polish-immigrants-head-back-home/
