Gentrification: All Eyes On Bed-Stuy

 
Proving yet again that pretty much all stories are education stories, there are at least two school-related elements to the fascinating New York magazine gentrification cover story Meet the Residents of MacDonough Street (in Brooklyn's Bed-Stuy).
 
There is a charter school at one end of the block (Excellence Boys Uncommon Charter School) and a district school on the other (PS/MS 262 El Hajj Malik El Shabazz School.
 
One of the renters who's profiled says she moved to the neighborhood to be closer to the charter school her son attends. 
 
Another part of the story features Brooke Vermillion and husband Ben Chapman (education reporter at the NY Daily News) - both above.
 
No word yet on where they're planning to send their child when it gets to school age.
