I have a friend from work (white, late 30's, hipsterish) who just bought a Flatbush fixer-upper rowhouse for $1.2 million. He has a wife and three small kids.
Oh man! I guess most of Brooklyn has been penetrated by hipsters. Let's see if they can get into Queens. Thank God NYC is large enough to not be totally affected by gentrification in one generation.
