The Crumbling Of A Street
Rising property values resulting from the spill off from a burgeoning adjacent downtown district, MetroTech, has hit Montague Street the way local residents and storeowners of the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood had feared and right under their noses too boot. Once brimming with character and seemingly untouched by chain development, the commercial strip now finds itself with an abundance of stores that do not reflect the local idiom. The community cites that behind closed-door deal making by property owners blindsided the residents and has allowed the street to proclaim: money talks and character walks.
