Gentrification Spreads to 96th Street

New, 39 comments

East Side community paper Our Town takes a look at the changes on the border between the Upper East Side and Spanish Harlem: "Gentrification has been slower in the East 90s than it has been in other parts of the city. But there have been a couple of signs that Carnegie Hill is creeping into El Barrio. For one thing, there has been a sprinkling of new upscale restaurants and shops appearing north of 96th. Still, residents often lack basic amenities, including coffee shops and newspaper stands." [Our Town]
