Describe the current event(s) that it is linked to. The author, Willy Staley, seems to have derived inspiration from an article he read about the gentrification of a food called chopped cheese. In his article Staley mentions many phenomenons that have been present in popular culture recently. These are tiny houses, “raw water,” “van life,” and the idea of being a good gentrifier.
NIMBYS The research done in the analysis of Sunset Park’s future in the modern economy ultimately leads back to a conversation about gentrification. The word gentrification has become a loaded term, synonymous with the displacement of the people most vulnerable in society—the undereducated, impoverished working class that is typically composed of immigrants; however, gentrification is akin to improvement. It is undeniable that these underserved communities need help, but talks of neighborhood “improvement,” “investment,” “revitalization,” “renewal,” and “economic development” are stymied by the taboo of gentrification. Gentrification at its simplest comes down to who is investing in a neighborhood.
What is gentrification? In case you don't know gentrification is when an investor/developer comes into a low income neighborhood and puts new house and etc to revitalize the area .I disagree with gentrification because of what is does to people,neighborhoods and etc .when gentrification occurs people get put out of homes prices go up and tradition changes .this happens in almost every city across the us .

Gentrification is the process of renovating and improving a house or district so that it conforms to middle-class taste. Real Estate investors usually take low-income places that they feel have a chance to prosper economically, and turn them into areas that attract the middle and upper class workers. In doing so they feel like the low-income areas will be safer and more appealing, attracting more people to visit and live there. An improvement to a poor district sounds beautiful, but is gentrification as great as it’s sought out to be? Many residents have their doubts about gentrification due to the idea that the costs of their living will go up and they will be driven out of their neighborhoods.
City life was changed drastically in the 1800s. “The most extensive urban renewal… took place in Paris in the 1850s. George Haussmann… built wide boulevards and splendid public buildings... Gradually, settlement patterns shifted” (250). Before, the streets were narrow and people didn’t have a lot of work to come by, and the reconstruction of the areas created many jobs.
As for gentrification moving a minority of people from their homes and replacing them with unreasonably priced condos and such and making new and wealthy people move in making it nearly impossible for the original residents to live there. They both have to do with a disbandment of people, and others moving in to do something “better” with what was left. When really these things were way better and well kept before they were ever interfered
In this speech, I will begin by explaining what gentrification is along with a short background on the Lincoln Park gentrification, then I will proceed to explain how the families in these areas fought for their homes, and finally I will be discussing the gentrification that is affecting citizens of Chicago today. Body I. Gentrification is the process of renovating an area to meet the standards of a different social class, typically the upper middle class. Throughout this process the price of renting and owning a home increases while family owned businesses become bankrupt. Low-income families are left homeless and without the support of a
The late 19th century was a monumental era for the city of Paris. As the city kept growing and increasing in popularity around the globe, the city itself was being modernized from its dated medieval layout. These modernizations had a direct impact on the culture of the city, the lifestyles of its inhabitants, and the prominence of the city across the world. Paris’ inhabitants were as social as ever, and often enjoyed themselves at cafés and bars. This modernization acted as a perfect catalyst to support the surging wave of capitalism across Western Europe.
Most people can pinpoint the changes that occurred in their urban areas; they noticed more non-native individuals move into their urban neighborhoods, following them came the increase of rent and the change of scenery. There was always a name for this issue, but it never surfaced until the late 1990’s. The term Gentrification comes from British sociologist Ruth Glass. “Once this process of gentrification starts in a district it goes on rapidly until all or most of the original working class occupiers are displaced and the social character of the district is changed”. (Kissam 2)
The main ideas of these two explanatory frameworks for the causes of gentrification have driven a theoretical conflict to explanations of gentrification, but more importantly, that these theoretical approaches are complementary and thus a more effective insights result from the combined application of these theories could be
The conclusions of gentrification has shifted in recent years, whether it stands for its moral or corrupt. In the course text from the Sharon Zukin’s article, “Naked City: The City That Lost Its Soul”, argues that gentrification is often detrimental to low income/longtime residents, destruction and the end of old authentic neighborhoods. Zukin argues, based on the facts on white-collar men and women have taken up all space, development of new residents and creating a cultural/economic barrier between rich and poor, young and old. Vice Versa, according to recent studies and new formulas of gentrification, it is an effective urban planning strategy because it minimizes the growth of slums, prevents crime and causes growth in the economy. Therefore,
Issue: Within the last decade, San Francisco has dramatically changed. San Francisco’s working class people and poor neighborhoods underwent drastic economic and racial changes from the 1990s to mid 2000s, resulting in the undeniable gentrification of the districts. San Francisco’s gentrification has reached a ridiculous new extreme, making it the most expensive city in the country, outstripping even Manhattan. The beginning of the issue was right after the dotcom and Tech industries started drastically moving to the Bay Area.
In order to understand our statistical data, we must first accurately grasp the definitions of gentrification and displacement. Gentrification means a demographic or physical change that conforms to the middle class. The financial definition of middle class means that a single individual or household makes between $50k-120k annually. Uniquely, displacement is the removal of something or someone by something else that takes their place. In our case, looking at gentrification in the San Francisco area within the last 10 years will possibly birth an explanation as to why Artist displacement is/was on the rise.
People who come from different ethnic backgrounds, for example, children of immigrants, can be viewed as not ‘truly French’, regardless of their nationality and whether they were born in France. Religion has also become a racial indicator as certain religions are associated with specific ethnicities. Religion and cultural identity are closely linked and religious faith is often another way to convey or express one’s cultural background. In this way, religion contributes to the separation of the population and lack of integration in France, as it is emblematic of cultural differences. These differences between various ethnic groups causes a lack of identification, creating a cultural rift.
Multicultural approach The practice of giving equal attention to various altered backgrounds, for instance an undergraduate classroom with students from several different countries and who speak different languages. A process of communicating where more than one cultures, communicating to each other and sharing ideas , thoughts and opinion and creating an interesting environment. However discussing basic characteristics of culture will have student refine their understanding of culture today. (Scupin, 2012) Multiculturalism Cultural diversity arising from the existence within a society, it acknowledges the importance of beliefs, values and ways of life in establishing a sense of self-worth for individuals and groups alike.
