Is Gentrification Different When It’s Not in a Booming Metro?
Posted by Miriam Axel-Lute on May 6, 2014
Interesting research that adds a wrinkle to the gentrification conversation: Todd Swanstrom writes about "rebound" neighborhoods in St. Louis and how they don't follow the typical "gentrification" pattern. Does this mean it can't happen? No, but it's a good reminder to look at what is actually happening, wherever you are, instead of making assumptions. I'll be very interested to see the follow up on these areas over the longer term.
