On the front page of yesterday's Times Real Estate section, a major story that made us spontaneously gurgle:
In the last decade, Williamsburg in Brooklyn has been a first stop for young people new to the city, just out of college. As they have grown up, the neighborhood has too, evolving from dive bars and movie rental joints to chic sushi restaurants and designer furniture emporiums.
Are we the only ones that remember last summer's proclamation that Williamsburg was one foot in the grave? Granted, that funeral came from the Metro desk. Has Real Estate performed a Billyburg resurrection? It's an Easter miracle! Now hurry up and go buy your new Williamsburg condo, before the Gray Lady gets bipolar again and Styles rings a neighborhood death knell.
