A pretentious neighborhood that has received a high amount of gentrification in recent years. The piers at gantry are quite marvelous. The neighborhood lacks the infrastructure of it’s neighbors greenpoint, and Astoria, and still has a lot of areas that face urban blight. Vernon boulevard boasts worldclass restaurants yet the largest housing projects can be found a mile away. Gleaming condos cannot hide the urine soaked streets and roaring seven train clatter. Did I mention five points will be removed from the area? The area is for yuppies who have no sense of life. Some old world brownstones hide under the seven train, and the moma ps1 is a great venue though.
