Brooklyn Chic

Jump to last reply

When did Brooklyn become so chic. Areas like Red Hook, Williamsburg? I grew up in Brooklyn in Bensohurst and moved in 1980 to Southern California. Neighborhoods were so unsafe you would not even want to drive through them. Now I see on travel shows these areas are cool and chic. I know Manhatten was cleaned up like Times square.
Just wondering?
Thanks
