Of course. People "moved up" from Williamsburg to Bushwick. They "moved up" from Bushwick to Ridgewood. They "moved up" from Ridgewood to Glendale. And so forth. It's not "snobbery", it's the way it was. And that wasn't different in the 70's and 80's, and even 90's.
I owned a building in Ridgewood in the 90's, and many of the tenants I would get were people "moving up" from Bushwick. Even then yet. It may have softened a little now as Bushwick isn't really all that bad anymore, even if Ridgewood still is nicer. The difference though now is that people aren't necessarily "moving up" anymore, now people are moving out of Bushwick and Greenpoint into Ridgewood because they are being priced out of Greenpoint, etc. Lots of Polish from Greenpoint moving into Ridgewood right now because Greenpoint got so expensive, so it kind of throws a wrench in the traditional movement.
