Segregation is a result of gentrification—the buying and renovation of houses in deteriorated neighborhoods by upper-income families or individuals—thus, improving property values but often displacing low-income families. It is this displacement that causes segregation in cities like Cleveland, Ohio and Tuscaloosa, Alabama. However, if the meaning of gentrification is changed, and people work towards making sure the upper-income families and the underprivileged are able to live together in the same community, segregation would subside. As suggested
The embargo of 1807 reduced the amount of desperately needed foreign goods. To compensate for this deficit, enhanced manufacturing became necessary, seen most notably in the Lowell System in the Northeast. The inventions of Francis Cabot Lowell allowed the Boston manufacturing company to coalesce all of these processes and procedures in the facility at Waltham. With peace, New England became a textile mill center (Borneman 259). This progression of manufacturing led to a larger middle class, as people found the desire to buy luxury goods for themselves once again, leading to economic enhancement.
Now Lincoln Park is seen as a fancy neighborhood with new restaurants, trendy stores, and young professional. Gentrification has caused the demographics of Lincoln Park to shift from African American and Mexican American to white.

However, agents serve their own interests by using certain words and other information.

(Wheeler, 2006) Many facts encourage people to locate in the suburban areas: 1- The well-developed transportation system: As an example of the transportation system development ‘’ highway’’. Highways increase the accessibility of regions and land as the result lands price increase. Some studies were done to prove that land increase in region that was previously less accessible but the land price decrease in region that was already accessible. Although the land price remains lower than the center of the city that why people tend to move to an accessible region with lower land price (Freese & Sternberg, 1998) 2- The equal distribution of resource all over the country: People won’t move to suburban area if the main resources were not available there. The distribution of resource in all the country will reform the wealth and decrease the poverty in suburban areas.
What is gentrification? Gentrification to me is nothing more than a system that robs the locals of their neighborhood by changing what made the neighborhood unique in order to turn a profit and make it a more desirable place to live. It is easily recognizable by the amount of construction occurring and the remodeling of homes, stores parks etc. this is commonly seen in low-income neighborhoods because it has a great starting ground. In order to attract more upper-class citizens, a legion of buildings is built that are usually expensive and caters to individuals of that class.
To begin with, throughout the years of 1945 and 1985 there has been a large change within the demographics in suburbanization. The cause of this major change was the rize of the upper middle class and the returning veterans of World War II.

The people who started to getting payed more started to move down to the suburbs because they no longer wanted to live in the ugly ghettos where the lower
Gentrification has had a constructive outcome on Social particularly on neighborhood. Some Neighborhood are experiencing through Gentrification in which destitute poor individuals are requested moved with certain installment while middle class individuals entered, yet at the same time the deplorable ones are agreeable to this idea in light of the fact that they profit by it. Destitute individuals advantage from enhancements in the public arena's administrations which they have a place, in light of that having low salary families have a higher inclination to have a high wage and can be a possibility of beginning another better life. Fundamentally Gentrification in a social level serves as obstruction from poor families to well off families. The most recent issue over urban legitimacy has developed in New York City where in poor people, white collar class, and rich have rubbed shoulders for a considerable length of time.
Maintain status quo. According to a survey of mayors, most of them expressed desire for higher housing values. For them, the ideal neighborhood is “older areas that have maintained housing values.” In light with economic imperatives and logic, mayors need to prioritize economic growth. Hence, they tend to view wealthier areas as model or ideal neighborhoods. Thus, it is unlikely for them to implement policies that would create highly-black neighborhood because of poverty and negative effects associated to concentrated poverty (Einstein and Glick 889).
During this period, the federal government provided grants to cities to encourage them to tear down derelict buildings and build municipally owned housing corporations. The 1960s: The Renaissance of Canada 's Cities CMHC shifts its focus to municipal planning and development to help cities deal with rapid urban growth. Public housing becomes more boldly designed and integrated into communities, mixing subsidized and non-subsidized units. Increased partnership with non-profit agencies also started around this time.

Resultantly, this causes people to move due to the increased rent. However, what is happening now in Yonkers is the reverse effect. This decrease in value can be attributed to the current state of Getty Square and the homeless. Yet, this statistic will not last forever. In fact, the fervor the Mayor has for this project will ultimately force him to make a critical decision: continue to rebuild Yonkers while still maintaining a place for the homeless, or get rid of them in order to increase rent
There is stringent law enforcement in some neighborhoods especially in combating drug usage. Many foreign investors are seeking meaningful real estate income by buying property in the area due to the increase in interest rates (Freeman & Braconi 44). The technology revolution is gradually kicking out older and poorer workers out of the labor force.

Document A Businesses went from low income friendly to high-income friendly. Low-income housing decreased in Woodward from 1995-2012 -Social housing increased from 1995 to 2012 It would have been better to live in Woodward in 1995 because the properties are low income friendly and more people have the opportunity to live there.

Another measure of gentrification that Lance Freeman provides is that whites increasingly started to visit/move into Harlem. There began to be a change in demographic profile, not necessarily a huge one but a prevalent one. Though the demographic crowd maybe stayed the same, the median household income of the people moving into to Harlem had significantly gone up. With all the modifications, the people who once lived in Harlem can no longer afford to live in Harlem, because gentrification cranks up the prices of living. That is why people of higher statuses with more money are able to move in, while people of lower status and less money are being pushed out.
