Change is underway

Each of the signs hanging in the windows of the closed down stores on 86th st say simply that the store has closed or moved. One might have thought that it was coincidence or simply a sign of a bad economy. (see NY Sun) But the economy is doing well and this is a bustling neighborhood.

The NY Times reports the explanation. The stores have closed down to make way for two new buildings. An apartment building is going up on Lexington Ave between 85th and 86th. On 3rd Ave and 86th st another condo building will go up.

I look forward to the further gentrification.
