Sunset Park---future gentrification?

Champ | Jul 28, 2003 01:39 PM

A weekend bike ride through Sunset Park (and the recent discussion about the emergence of restaurant rows) made me wonder if that area will one day follow in the path of Park Slope, Fort Greene, Carroll Gardens, etc. In ten years will we see hipster bars and bistros along 5th Avenue below 39th Street or is the area too far out for anything like that to happen? I'm tempted to say that it will not gentrify, but, then again, seeing the brownstones, the scenic view from the top of the park, the waterfront, etc. I wonder if maybe I'm wrong. Any thoughts?
