The whole nine

Okay, so the gentrification of Prospect Heights is proceeding apace - and if it were not, then being featured on the New Yorker website would clinch it. (You'd never guess from this elegaic story, which concludes that things are just changing as they always have, that this was an Afro-Caribbean neighborhood, though.) That's the building which eclipsed my Manhattan view, just the tip - as I've recently realized - of an approaching iceberg. Another dozen buildings are planned to its left as part of the Atlantic Yards (or Pacific Park, as it calls itself) and among those, this one won't even rate. It's chopped off at lower right below.
