Brooklyn’s Innovative and Independent Local Economy

At the Brooklyn Night Bazaar in Williamsburg this past weekend we were thrilled to check out all the DIY designs, live music and tasty and inventive snacks on hand (peppermint patty CAKE, omg). Thousands of locals came out to see the crafts and culture and share it with friends this holiday season. Tweet us @bklyntheborough or use #BKLYN if you see any good items out in the markets and we’ll share it with the borough.

Landlord As a Second Language

A week ago, I received an email about a vacant industrial warehouse on 46th Street in Sunset Park that recently sold for $1,100,000. Each of the 4,900 square feet came to $225. I wondered why a bare bones property like this would cost so much, but somewhere out there a landlord was probably excited that it cost so little.

This is the landlord-tenant language divide.
