7 Reasons to Move to Brooklyn ...

All over the world, people assume that New Yorkers are dying to live in Manhattan, and there are very few reasons to move to Brooklyn or the outer boroughs unless it’s absolutely necessary.

I’m here to argue against that stereotype, considering there are many reasons to move to Brooklyn...

but here are the top 7.

1. Gentrification

Few people these days consider themselves real estate moguls, but if you follow the market trends like I do, you’ll realize that Brooklyn has become one of the hottest and trendiest areas on the east coast.

Sure, there are many neighborhoods that have a long way to go, but combined with city-wide funding, generous personal donations and some much needed positive publicity, Brooklyn has made the comeback of the century.

Neighborhoods like North Williamsburg and Boerum Hill, which once contained the highest crime rates in all the five boroughs;

now house some of the wealthiest urbanites in the tri-state area, not to mention growing upper middle class families, making Brooklyn’s 180 degree gentrification one of the many reasons to migrate to this hip-hopping borough.
