    the whole nyc area from north jersey, westchester and southeastern connecticut is fukked. they're gentrifying stamford right now as we speak. the place around where the passport agency in stamford is where they're gentrifying. these people moving into the trendy areas of NYC have no clue the negative rippling effect they're doing where the cost of living is going on outside the city. it's bad all around and the crazy thing is these same folks aren't even staying in the area. they go from brooklyn to another city in another part of america that's trendy or experiencing gentrification.

    that's why i'm convinced that some of these folks involved in what's going on in brooklyn and all these other gentrified areas in nyc are agents or apart of some shyt. the way they move, the fact that they're usually involved in liberal and democrat politics and activism and a lot of them seem to be like moving on the same type of shyt. it's weird.

    That third link is right around the corner from me. That's East Flatbush, not PLG. Real estate agents playing their games. I'm glad they scaled it down though. That shyt would have been tall as hell.

    Yeah, they're trying to call everything PLG now lol. I'm glad it's scaled down too and it looks a lot better now imo. I was down there a few days ago and there's so much construction and new buildings I hadn't even seen pop up over the last couple of years. I guess that's Brooklyn as a whole though. Are people actually moving into the buildings? I've gotta wonder if there is the income/population at some point...

    I figured haha. These I doubt it. I'm actually surprised they're not condos.

    Crain’s says that a large part of the problem is that property owners treat fines as being part of the overall business operation; an existing statute of limitations means that the city can’t collect fines after eight years. Furthermore, the fines are often tied to a variety of LLCs, and as time goes on, many of these companies shutter, making it harder for the city to collect the fines.
