An article in the NY Times looks at how the latest cool neighborhood develops from its often humble (and honest) beginnings.

The point is that an early stage of next-neighborhood development happens when the people who have most recently moved in begin to recreate there the place that they either wanted to be in originally or that rent increases moved them out of. It’s sometimes tough to distinguish, especially now when the next-neighborhood cycles seem to be picking up speed, when people are beginning to be kicked out of neighborhoods their demographic equals haven’t even heard about yet.

(btw – Bushwick is the next big place, NYT suggests)
