Is the reason Brooklyn has done it by leaps and bounds beyond the Bronx just b/c it's a little more convenient to lower MFH?? The Bronx has a tremendous advantage in being part of the MAINLAND USA, unlike the rest of NYC.

The row house neighborhoods get the first-wave gentrifiers (such as artists). those first-wave gentrifiers make the neighborhood hip and as gentrification proceeds apace it spills over into adjacent industrial and apartment neighborhoods.

Bronx is almost all apartments, no row houses.

Distance between Williamsburg and downtown MFH: 0.5 miles.

Distance between Long Island City and midtown MFH: 0.5 miles

Distance between south bronx and midtown MFH: 4 miles

It's not just about distance, it's definitely about fashion and trendiness and being near other trendy neighborhoods and having the sort of housing stock that appeals to gentrifiers (or at least being physically adjacent to neighborhoods that do, so you get a spillover effect)

Much quicker to get to Midtown from S Bronx than it is to get downtown from Park Slope.

Yeah well that house needs work. The first one here is $1200/sq ft, the second one's $860/sq ft. Pretty much similar to Prospect Heights or South Slope.

The real answer is that there are only so many white people go go around. You'd need 2x more white people for that much gentrification, and not that many whites move to NYC.

Bronx got gutted by that idiot city planner so it's all freeways and housing projects.

There's an Irish area though still. Never seen it
