So, developers generally don't care about what's best for the cities they operate in. What else is new? Williamsburg is over. It almost makes you want to leave NYC--go some place where the looming threat of eviction-by-gentrification isn't always on one's mind. It's exhausting keeping up these battles for one neighbourhood after the other, especially because the money always wins.
But these are all REAL artists. Wouldn't the hipsters be the marginal hangers-on in their midst who've been long-since forgotten?
