New York Magazine has crowned Bed-Stuy the city’s next hipster enclave, citing competitively priced (say what?) new construction like the Mynt, where one-bedrooms will start at $1,700 a month. (Interestingly, though the Apartments & Lofts agent quoted by New York is a big Bed-Stuy booster, the brokerage’s listings for the Mynt peg it as Clinton Hill, not Bed-Stuy.) The mag contends the neighborhood is primed to shelter all manner of hipsterdom priced out of Clinton Hill. Bed-Stuy Blog weighs in on the ‘hood’s new designation:
Clearly this is mostly a North Stuy phenomenon. I’ve noticed that the part of Bed-Stuy serviced by the G train line looks like it’s getting more and more Clinton Hill and Williamsburg spillover as each month passes. I have no problems with this trend, especially if it means that maybe one day those elitists at Fresh Direct will finally decide to deliver to the Bed-Stuy sections of 11206 (they seem to think only the Bushwick section of 11206 is worthy of their fine goods and services). Maybe by spring the North Stuy will be The Nextâ€¦place to get a decent grocery store.
