Gentrification Watch

The Daily News checks up on the gentrification going on in Crown Heights, putting it in the context of the riots being 20 years in the past at this point. The racial and socioeconomic diversity seems to be a draw for a lot of people, with the piece saying "The neighborhood's new population includes mixed race hipsters and young biracial families moving from pricier neighborhoods. Others identify as Jewish with a black parent who want a multi-cultural area to call home." So, at the 20 year anniversary, how do locals feel about the change in the area? Can it forge ahead? [NYDN]
