The Onion used one of the images from Brooklynian created by one of our members (Karl the Druid?)
Funny story, check it out.Report: Nation's Gentrified Neighborhoods Threatened By Aristocratization:
Rumor has it that William and Kate were in one of the local real estate offices looking to buy in the area as well.
After the Aristocrates displace the hard working upper managers from Park Slope, the upper managers displace the middle managers from Prospect Heights.
Then the middle managers displace people with graduate degrees from FauxCro, who -in turn- displace people who live in places that used to be regarded as NoGo.
I knew gentrification had taken a new turn for the worse when a fencing club bought the space previously occupied by a Mexican restaurant (7th Ave & 3rd St).
Nice job Karl!

It's true, aristocrats love their fencing.
On a side note: Barrio is becoming a fencing club? How does that make money?
High membership fees, which the nobility can afford!
Speaking of fencing, we need a bunch of Zorros and Robin Hoods to save society from the ravages of plutocracy. If things don't change we'll all be living (or dying) in some dystopia much like Lang's Metropolis:
Our dystopia is others' utopia.
That's precisely the point made by that movie.
