Personally, I feel that property values in Brooklyn in general are not going to rise much as a percentage of inflation adjusted income. The median home price here is about 20 times the median annual household income. The national average for the past 20 years hovers around 3x and got up to about 5x at the its mid 00's peak. Much more than 20 times just doesn't seem sustainable, but what do I know? That being said, there are probably a few blocks in Clinton Hill, those closest to the already nice blocks, that may become more desirable than they already are, but those homes are already priced as being on more desirable blocks. Most of Clinton Hill will always be dicey because of the projects and the art school junkies... I mean students. Despite being predominately immigrant Mexican and Chinese, Sunset Park is more firmly middle class throughout the neighborhood with of course many lower income households dispersed throughout the neighborhood. I have rented in Both neighborhoods and I very much preferred living in Sunset Park. SP has a more friendly, family vibe and is bordered by relatively nice neighborhoods on all sides, so it doesn't feel like you are isolated in a couple of gentrified blocks. Not to get too racial, but the number of young upwardly mobile gringos I see in Sunset Park has risen exponentially in the last five years. If I had a million bucks I would definitely buy a very nice home in Sunset near the park over a borderline townhouse in Clinton Hill or a big lofty condo there.
