Bay Ridge is gaining Middle Eastern immigrants; new bars, restaurants and art events; and people priced out of the rest of the city, The Wall Street Journal found in a look at the area. Bay Ridge’s varied housing stock, which runs the gamut from Victorian houses to modern condos, has been attracting new buyers, said brokers. Unfortunately, the area has seen such an influx of young families that local schools are now overcrowded. Despite all the changes, “the area retains its old Brooklyn feel, celebrated in the 1970s classic ‘Saturday Night Fever,’ which is set in Bay Ridge,” the Journal concluded.
