With rumors of Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters setting its sights on Brooklyn, many have been wondering where, exactly, Clinton would be able to afford taking up residence. Although Bushwick has long ago seen its heyday with regard to “cheap” rent, it still remains one of the few Brooklyn areas to stay in Clinton’s financial planning wheelhouse.
Bushwick also holds cachet for Clinton due to her longstanding history with it. As you may remember, she held a small, intimate gathering at Roberta’s back in 2012 in honor of a high-rolling Democratic donor’s birthday. Clinton took an immediate shine to the neighborhood, noting, “It’s got plenty of rustic charm.”
According to a source close within the Clinton camp, “Hillary is 100% invested in setting up her headquarters here. So far, we’ve been eyeing Bat Haus, the backyard at Roberta’s and the rooftop at Coagulate as legitimate spaces to infiltrate.” Clinton is expected to make her announcement within the next week, which could mean this is your last chance to get 24-hour brunch from Roberta’s before it becomes exclusively available to Hill. And ladies, you may also want to consider dusting off your chastity belts with Bill “blowing” through town.
