Williamsburg Part II: More Evidence the Burg is Toast
We are not going to devote a lot of verbiage to this--because the visuals speak for themselves. These images are screencaps from the Northside Piers website, which has just been expanded. (Northside Piers is the Toll Brothers development going up on Kent Avenue in Williamsburg adjacent to 184 Kent at N. 5th Street.) There's an invite only cocktail reception to kick off sales tonight in Manhattan. In any case, we offer this in order to simply say: Williamsburg as we know it, is toast. Of course, we realize there are those who lived there for decades who would say that it was toast when the first wave of gentrification happened. But what's about to occur is something of an entirely different magnitude.
