You’re right. The jobs have to be there for people to migrate. But I do see it and I have seen it for several years now. People lucky enough to have had a brownstone in Brooklyn are coming down here and paying cash for a nice home and pocketing a substantial chunk.

Because we do!
Not to be snarky or glib but goddamn it we deserve a lot more and a lot better. And if we don’t beg, borrow, steal it or otherwise take it we will never get it.
