When Urban Trendy Areas become Hip?

Posted in Accomadation, Education, Fashion, life, Living, Music, Nights Out, Politics, Romance with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2009 by Richard James Clark II

This article is about all the trendy areas which become so expensive to live in, due to bankers and rich kids, estate agents putting up the prices of property, from the time the areas are tidied up by bringing in boutiques and culture.

Whereas before the areas were nasty to live in, artists move in make them HIP then the SIGN OF GREED changes everything.

London’s Shoreditch area is becoming the same.

It has been getting worse over the last 3 years, artists and residents are seeing the area change dramatically and it’s spreading to other areas, Dalston, Hackney and even Clapton.

It is fine if you earn a decent wage or get good money or try to make ends meet, but when general going out and food is getting so expensive-HOW IS ANYONE supposed to live.

On a personal note, I will be moving out of Bethnal Green due to the expense of living in the area and I mainly go out in South London, New Cross and sometimes West but not regularly.

So I know how I feel about these peoples situations but things move on and progress will continue….Unfortunately

Anyway Jnerio Jarel (The Hip-Hop Producer) was talking about this on Myspace about Brooklyn and I would like some London artists to discuss this issue…

Here is some views from Jneiro Jarel’s article-copy and paste below link

He got this from the link is to pitchfork about TV on the Radio producer David Sitek having to close his studio in Williamsburg because he can’t afford the rent, he is now moving to live in LA permanently.
