A prescient friend of mine named Lauryn who has always been a trendsetter, or at least, one of those Malcolm Gladwell “influencer” types who can spot a trend and make it run recently purchased her first condo in Brooklyn. Yes, it’s Williamsburg but this is the outer limit, as in where W-burg is headed. She paid a ridiculously low price in exchange for taking 2 more stops on the subway. It’s a brand-new conversion of an older, architecturally interesting building. Obviously, I am SO proud of her. Check out this NYTimes article from 2/4/07 about buyers just like her. In fact, one of her neighbors is made “famous” in the read.
