Spotlight on Bed-Stuy Gentrification

In New York City on June 7, 2006 at 8:49 pm

To go along with Keeley's gentrifiction post, here are a couple articles i've encountered recently on gentrification in Bed-Stuy.  The New York Sun ran an article yesterday about the Renaissance of the neighborhood, while New York Magazine ran an article a while back about one specific block.

While gentrification has been a fear/issue in the community for a while, it's interesting to see that the media is running articles on it.  The articles can make for a good read, but i'm not sure that they are helping matters any.
