Manhattan building permits may have been dead in September, but not good old Brooklyn. "Cypress Hill, 11208, saw the largest number of permits filed — 243 — 7.5 percent higher than last year. After than came zip code 11211 (they call it East Williamsburg but it covers all of hipster-land as well) with 226 new building permits, 107.3% more than last year. In general, building permits were up in the borough." Cypress Hills! Take that, UWS. [Brownstoner]
