It's happening, couples with six figure incomes buying the house next to or across the street from their parents house or a couple of blocks away from where they grew up and fixing up these homes with their disposable income.

They are also demanding better education programs, better policing of neighborhoods.

laugh.gif Is that right? Better education programs for their kids, if they have any, that don't attend schools in the communities they reside in. If they have children they don't go to the schools because they are in poor standing and they would be the minority. The parents fear the treatment that their child will endure at the hands of their classmates and thus put them in an environment that they are familiar with. Many of the young people gentrifying neighborhoods do not have children and are not planning to have any. They cram themselves four or five into an apartment then split before the year is up. In the time that I've lived in my building, of all the gentrifiers that came and went only one couple had children. Their young son didn't go to school in the neighborhood. That couple split as soon as their home loan got approved. These people aren't in it for the long haul in these communities. They simply are looking for somewhere that they can afford that allows them to maintain the lifestyles they want to live.

Policing of neighborhoods? So now policing of neighborhoods is a concern and priority when non melanated peoples move in. Where was this concern when crack flooded the streets and after Giuliani went hard on the drugs, the gangs came in? Gentrification is nothing more than organized racism in an effort to displace those currently there.

Money trumps all. Unfortunate for many who have to pack up and leave

What did they do to get pushed out of the community?

Lol dont feed into it. Let those types expose themselves so you can keep it moving.

Expose themselves so you can keep it moving? How does that help anybody. Why not just listen to somebody else's opinion and respect what they have to say?

Gentrification has been happening throughout history. If these communities wouldn't let their beloved communities deteriorate then these areas wouldn't be cheap.

Young people with disposable income want to live, eat, be entertained close home/work. The poor get pushed out. If you own a home in these areas you will come up. If you're a renter, landlord will probably get an offer down the road and once your lease is up. Deuces.

Sometimes I feel like people want to keep hoods... Hood. Makes no sense.

It's not that simple. A lot of these neighborhoods are "hood" because the city doesn't give a damn about preventing crime, cleaning the streets, and creating opportunities until wealthy/white people move there.

Out here in San Jose, I live in the eastside. Not the ghetto, but further away from wealthy. There's shopping carts filled with trash, old furniture, and especially always old mattresses. I don't know where they come from, I try to look for people dumping them and nothing gets done til the city picks them up. You don't see that sort of behavior in Willow Glen (wealthy part of San Jose.)
