Gentrification Watch

New, 1 comment

Bushwick, like a lot of Brooklyn, is gentrifying at a rapid pace, and longtime residents want that to stop. A rally was recently held to demand tighter rent regulation laws, which are up for renewal early next year. Already tenants feel pressure from their landlords and struggle for necessary repairs. "On the internet, we read that Bushwick is getting better," said on tenant. "But for who?" Probably the people living here, here, here, and here.
