You had college professors, nonprofit staff, people in publishing, teachers. They were middle class and very highly educated and went to Brooklyn because of the kind of creativity and arts scene and people like them, frankly. For people in those same professions today, Brooklyn is mainly unaffordable — those same neighborhoods are clearly unaffordable.

This article is getting me so heated I mean god damn.

“I defy any New Yorker with a beating heart not to cry.”
Sadie Stein remembers the 1986 New York Mets’ video yearbook, A Year to Remember.

This is perhaps an opportune moment to mention that former-children’s book editor and filmmaker extraordinare, Heather Quinlan, is working on a documentary about the ‘86 Mets. It’s the Project of the Day at Kickstarter.
She is a testament to the wonders we can achieve if we just get out of publishing. 
In addition to several of the champion Mets, she has Chuck Schumer, Rudy Giuliani, and Charles Grodin signed up to chat on camera. And for the literarily inclined, she has Paul Auster sharing his memories of the series. It’ll be fun for the whole family.
She’s within striking distance of her $50,000 goal with only 3 days left.
If you can, donate, won’t you?

People silently struggle from all kinds of terrible things. They suffer from depression, ambition, substance abuse, and pretension. They suffer from family tragedy, Ivy-League educations, and self-loathing. They suffer from failing marriages, physical pain, and publishing.
