Gentrified Do or Die #gentrification #USA

YOU don't hustle, YOU don't eat. If grown men keep crying what are the babies going to do? #gentrification coming to a city near you.#justmythoughts "money is your report card" #KeepGodFirst The money will follow. At some point we'll leave this world behind, live a life you can remember. And still nothing moves but the money...#SmoochTheKing #Saturday #Stamina Should I leave the "hood" or buy the "hood" back?

No brainer

Parts of my neighbourhood are in the process of being gentrified and every time I pass this I feel a bit sad and a bit voyeuristic. People will have had created lives in these rooms and now they’re all being exposed before being turned to rubble and erased entirely. Granted the new flats look so much better but it’s got to be bitter sweet for those born and raised here... I can’t be nice for the people in the towers behind to wake up everyday and see knowing they’re next, too.

“Muscle for the Money:
I wrote this when I was living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn in 2014, which was (and is) going through massive gentrification while the de Blasio administration reintroduced broken windows policing so police harassment (of longtime residents, not new arrivals) was constant. Then, Taylor Swift was made an ambassador for NYC tourism and a ukulele pop song was a way to vent my frustration!” -Julia #50songstories #49of50 #muscleforthemoney #gentrification #brokenwindowspolicing #tothewolves

I have a lot of things to process after this trip, one being the neighborhood I stayed in - Shaw. This is a neighborhood of change and gentrification, I sensed extremes the day I got here. The building I'm staying in is the whole "luxury apartments" deal with rooftop pool yadda yadda. Within a block or two there's a food shelter and public housing complexes. Historical context from Wikipedia to the rescue: "Shaw emerged from freed slave encampments in the rural outskirts of Washington, D.C... The neighborhood thrived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as the pre-Harlem center of African American intellectual and cultural life. During this time, President Andrew Johnson signed Howard University’s founding charter... Following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968, riots erupted in many D.C. neighborhoods, including Shaw... The 1968 Washington, D.C. riots marked the beginning of a decline in population and development that condemned much of the inner city to a generation of economic decay... Succeeding the riots, Shaw civic leaders Walter Fauntroy and Watha T. Daniel led grassroots community renewal projects with the Model Inner City Community Organization (MICCO). MICCO used federal grant money to employ African American architects, engineers, and urban planners in inner-city Washington D.C.
Shaw is a residential neighborhood dominated by 19th century Victorian row houses. The architecture of these houses, Shaw's central location, and the stability of D.C.'s housing market have transformed the neighborhood through gentrification. Preservation advocates in the Dupont Circle neighborhood began to propose the expansion of the neighborhood. The advocates were members of the Dupont Circle Conservancy, an organization predominantly led by European-American people. As a response to this proposal, the 14th and U Street Coalition, which called itself the representative of black interests and historical identity in neighboring Shaw, began protesting that the Dupont Circle preservationists were trying to occupy their neighborhood and its history." #history #gentrification #washingtondc #shawhoward
