Changes in Kings County Real Estate prices from 2004 to 2012, ie., Gentrification in Brooklyn
Courtesy of Property Shark, we have this handy interactive map of Brooklyn real estate values — specifically, how much more expensive neighborhoods have become over the last 8 years. At the top end:
Williamsburg is up 174%
Fort Greene, Gowanus and Prospect Leffert Gardens are all in the 50-plus % range.
Greenpoint up by 47%
All the gentrification hype of the last decade shouldn’t obscure the fact that some parts of Brooklyn have declined in real estate values. Namely:
Cypress Hills, down 30%
Brownsville, down 12%
East Flatbush, down 22%
Fort Hamilton, down 19%
If you compare the swathes of pink/red to the big patches of grey, it’s hard not to come away with the sense that most of Brooklyn is just creeping along.
