Gentrification

Gentrification plays a major role in our blog’s theme, ‘Sprawling Out’. Gentrification’s residential shift allows for the rebuilding of a poor urban area into an area with high real estate prices, thus driving out and displacing poorer residents who cannot afford the increased property taxes and rents. Many part of Los Angeles such as Echo Park and the ‘Arts District’ have become home to urban gentrification.
