Gentrification Watch

On the heels of this past weekend's protest by South Bronx residents over the potential rezoning and subsequent, apparently inevitable, gentrification of the city-proposed "Cromwell-Jerome" neighborhood comes a more detailed breakdown of the risks and rewards of such a move. For one, affordable housing would be a boon, but local auto shops could get sacrificed: "Improving a neighborhood for its residents—not without them—includes offering residents the choices they deserve: the ones in their best interest, not just the ones that sell well."
