gentrification (good or bad?)
piece was convincing; combined comedy with dialogue that described what gen was, and educates viewers whether they realize it or not
Ex: The guy is now a dog walker when stereotypically you prob wouldnt think that
Ex: artisinal store that popped up. was a white building surrounded by buildings that were darker in color and older looking
Ex: When they made a joke about gluten muffins
The creators should know that this is both comedic & educational, shows people a small piece of what gentrification is w/o being too heavy; commend them

"the state shift into a more openly supportive role... helped facilitate a rapid expansion of the process during the 3rd wave." (470)
Gentrification of Black and White
state wanted to deconcentrate poverty and transform inner-city neighborhoods
"the removal of concentrations of very-low-income people of color allows a reimaging of urban spaces critical to the national and international competition for private investment" (1582)
they wanted to target project they felt had the greatest promise for additional public and private investment
gentrification has been put in place part to reverse urban decline in cities but has inadvertenly led to the displacement of many low- income black families that rely of public housing assistance
Economic Transition of Paterson
UEZ programs were put in place to "help revitalize the state's economically distressed urban communities" (6)
