Meanwhile, on Kent Avenue in Williamsburg

Gentrification, Kent Avenue, originally uploaded by rsguskind.

We found this little juxtaposition of construction and unhappy commentary on Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, where the Attack of the 40-Story Luxury Condos has begun. This is the site of "The Edge" a multi-tower project that is now clearly under contruction. To the left is the now emptied 184 Kent, due for a significant alteration as part of its next life as a luxury condo. Check back next Memorial Day Weekend, and the view from here should by very, um, edgey. Can you say, Battery Park City?
