Brooklyn Bound? ...and so are the Nets

Jen and I are seriously considering a move to Brooklyn; Park Slope to be specific. A number of friends and colleagues call the neighborhood home, and a recent visit over the weekend (200 5th Ave -- for a delicious brunch) persuaded us even further.

This morning I read that the plans for the Nets arrival to Brooklyn may be an even larger footprint than expected. Then I realized just how close all of this construction is to the neighborhood we would like to inhabit.

Well, we've still got another couple of months to decide (or until I lose my mind commuting back and forth from out east on Long Island).

Is that area going to be more or less expensive than the place you guys have now?

It certainly will be more in rent, but figure in the $230 monthly savings from my LIRR train ticket and selling off one of our cars, it will more than make up the difference!
