After speaking extensively about gentrification in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill on the Brian Lehrer Show earlier this week (sparking much debate on Brownstoner), actress and Brooklynite Rosie Perez moderated a panel discussion touching on the topic, and Brooklyn the Borough chatted with her afterward. Her advice for NYC newcomers: "If you’re going to the park with your baby stroller and you plop right down in the middle of the park where people have played soccer for years, and you don’t want to move; move. It's rude." [Brooklyn the Borough]
