The NY Times recently published some interesting statistics about changes in various neighborhoods since the last census in 2000.
Here's what they said about my neighborhood, "Sunset Park/Windsor Terrace," labeled #7 in Brooklyn on the graphic.
- 72% more adults with bachelor's degrees but no higher degrees
- 33% fewer residents who work in construction and manufacturing
None of that surprised me at all. My gentrifying neighborhood has changed a lot over even the past few years, let alone looking back to 2000. I wish I had more statistics about how rents have gone up in line with these demographic changes!
