10 Signs Your Neighborhood is Becoming Gentrified

10. Breakfast Is Replaced By Brunch

Breakfast is a meal designed for early risers. As construction workers and janitors move out of your neighborhood, bloggers and assistant art gallery managers will move in. And they don't wake up early. You can kiss the idea of getting a meal for less than $15 goodbye. Those two eggs and bacon will now be served on an English Muffin over sauce, and violá, you'll have an over-priced eggs benedict.

Don't even think about getting hungry before 11 a.m. Your neighborhood is going to be a ghost town until then. Once the block does rise, the clomp-clomp-clomping of high heels trekking from one brunch spot to the next seeking a reservation will haunt your weekend day dreams forever. Make sure you get the unlimited mimosas, buddy; the endless banal chatter is too much to bear without liquid courage.
