In an article dated March 31, 2008, Claire Levenson discusses the impact of the recession on real estate and housing in Bushwick: “Bushwick hasn’t lived up to the hype of recent years as Brooklyn’s next up-and-coming neighborhood for young buyers priced out of Williamsburg, and now it has fallen prey to the downturn affecting many fringe neighborhoods.

Amenities associated with gentrification have been slow to materialize, and many old buildings have not been restored. Sales have slowed, and at least one appraiser sees development slowing this year as well.”
