"Can you believe Brooklyn is now more expensive than Manhattan?! I was looking at a two-bedroom in Washington Heights. Pre-war and the living room looked out at both the GW and the Tappan-Zee! $600k. Not cheap, yeah, but a two bedroom in the Stuy that looks at a tree on the sidewalk...$775k. And we're talking low-bid contracting here! Growing up I wouldn't even go to Times Square and this is how things have changed!"
