The second something becomes “over” in New York–even neighborhoods–denizens must move on to the next thing, rendering whatever they were formerly interested in less expensive. Such has been the case with Bushwick, now utterly passé in the eyes of anyone with taste.
This is precisely why, for the first time in years, the average rent price for apartments in the area have gone down. Real estate agent Taki Avantage confirmed to The Burning Bush, “We’re seeing a sharp increase in migration to remoter stops on the L train, you know Wilson, Bushwick-Aberdeen, places like that.”
What this means for the future of Bushwick is unclear. It’s likely to be left to the olds with Kavé senior citizen cards and babies on the way. But who knows? If it gets too cheap, maybe there will be another resurgence in “artists” flocking to the nexus for solace and cheap alcohol.
