1717 Troutman Evictions in Ridgewood (East Bushwick?)

1857614483_f380279a62.jpgI found this photo today on Flickr and it touched me since evictions are a fact of life in Bushwick (and environs) today.The NY Times’ City Blog has an interesting discussion about the fact that
Bushwick, once rejected by real estate agents and hipsters, has become the new currency of cool…and why do people hate hipsters? Hipsters don’t bother anyone and keep to themselves…it’s so irrational.

Other interesting points about the evictions are recorded at BushwickBK and NY Mag, the former has a great collection of comments, while the latter is expectedly snarky.
