Bed-Stuy Gentrification Watch

In an online publication focused on modern places and spaces, one essayist discuses her experience as a Bed-Stuy "gentrifier." She explores into the history and cultural fabric of the area, as well as what's changing and the myriad tensions, diving deep into the reasons for and offering explanatory anecdotes that back up statements like these: "The Bed-Stuy I've found in 2013-14 is a contradictory mix of barbed wire and wealth; a microcosm of the ills and gains of gentrification as a whole."
