Open Phones: Where Are the Artists Moving?

Last week on the show, we discussed the new "loft law," which will affect certain spaces used as artists studios. A caller to the show pointed out the typical artist path through the city:

if you're an artist, and you can't afford Soho, you move to Williamsburg. And if you can't afford Williamsburg...then you go out to Bushwick, and if you can't afford Bushwick you go to East New York. And it just keeps pushing, then you go to Union City and then you go to Jersey City and it just keeps moving forward.

So, where are the artists moving? What's the next neighborhood in line? Are you an artist that has had to follow cheaper space around the city? Tell us your artist-in-motion story here!
