More on Shorecrest Towers

This marks the beginning of the yuppie and hipster migration to Southern Brooklyn.
 

NY Observer Excerpt -

The Shorecrest Towers at Trump Village, a complex of 880 units currently undergoing renovation in Coney Island—a waterfront neighborhood with yet-unproven high-end residential allure—where rents run from $1,500 for studios to $2,831 for three-bedrooms, makes its claim to luxury largely on the basis of moderately fine amenities, such as a shared fitness center and rooftop deck, stainless steel kitchen appliances and modern light fixtures lacking conspicuously in tony name brands. The intended effect seems to be to suggest sleek modern city living at a steep discount. (As of February, the average Brooklyn studio rents for $2,300, according to a report prepared by Douglas Elliman.)
