As a person who has lived here in Flatbush for 12 years, both in now-so-called Lefferts Manor, and in Midwood, this blog is nice to see. While it is nice sometimes to see new things happening in the neighborhood like a coffee shop or having the stores stay open later, I wonder who all of this is far or rather who gets to reap the benefits of all the changes going on in the neighborhood. I'm a 37 year old white female living with my girlfriend, trying to make art, trying to find community, trying to live a politically conscious life and very little of this new found interest in this neighborhood seems to be benefiting me or anyone who has even less financial resources than me. If I moved from my apartment now, which has many hard issues to deal with, I wouldn't be able to afford this neighborhood.
