I don’t see how bringing up the property value in a neihborhood and slowly easing out the unsavory is bad. But thats just me. Perhaps I’m jaded.
Gentrification isn’t just bringing up property value in a neighborhood and “slowly easing out the unsavory”. What do you even mean by that? Do you mean poor people? Because that is who is getting effected by it the most and that includes me and many people I know. We should be able to live where we want to. Rent has doubled and tripled in many parts of Brooklyn because of upper middle class and upper class people moving in and pushing us out without any remorse or guilt. What makes their coffee shops and boutiques better than the bodegas and 99 cent stores? They are small businesses too. The value of a neighborhood SHOULD NEVER be determined by what class of people live in it. We are not unsavory. We belong here.
