It is easy to see why Brooklyn's displaced millennials are moving to Ridgewood, Queens, a neighborhood along the border with Bushwick, Brooklyn. (In fact, it can be hard to figure out where Bushwick ends and Ridgewood begins.)

To take a bite out of this up and coming neighborhood you've got to start at Bunker, which serves award-winning Vietnamese street food from Chef Jimmy Tu.

Just this week work began on a new 90-unit apartment building near a subway stop. Median sales prices are up nearly 40 percent from last year.
Crystal Williams owns a neighborhood hub called Norma's on Catalpa Avenue. That storefront and thousands of other buildings are protected historic landmarks.
As Ridgewood's architecture remains, what is in store for the people who've called it home? More changes.
