    great NYT article on hip hop/gentrification

    as a lover of hip hop and also living in Brooklyn and working in all those neighborhoods when i'd be the only white person i saw all day, this is a great article

    the New York Times just churns out incredible stuff, especially on Sundays

    but as the article suggests, it is not the same Brooklyn you had seen
    the hipsters do really drive me a bit crazy but the alternative was getting killed 555

    funny enough i worked in all those bad neigborhoods and seeing a white guy, they just assume you are a cop and leave you alone 555

    about 6 months ago i landed at JFK at 6am, had a rental car and with time to kill and just drove around all the parts of Brooklyn i used to live in, was a nice memory trip
