Condos are booming in Brooklyn, with reports that condo transfers are up 124% and condo prices have increased 19-24%. Neighborhoods like Park Slope and Cobble Hill are growing as become more and more attractive to people fleeing Manhattan apartment prices, while Williamburg and Greenpoint are "emerging" areas for condos. Right, none of this is surprising - it's more confirmation of what everyone else suspected. And it's a chance for someone from the Real Estate Board to comment about how hot Brooklyn is with "It clearly shows the extraordinary interest in Brooklyn." Feh - Brooklyn's been interesting for a while - just not to condo developers. What will the next big Brooklyn neighborhoods be? Red Hook always seems like it's on the verge... What about Windsor Terrace and Kensington, just south of Park Slope?
