Hello There! My name is Carolyn Gusoff from CBS New York. Today I will be reporting on the gentrification in Brooklyn, New York, USA, shown in the map below. We are looking into a family that owns a restaurant that has been in their family for generations. The rising costs in the neighborhood is posing a risk for residents and business owners that have lived their a long time. New residents may push out the long residents.
I don't think they care about the long time residents like us!
We are getting pushed out! We can barely afford the rising prices!
This is the Johnson Family. We are inside the Johnson Diner that is almost 80 years old! What do you think about the change of your neighborhood?
If we don't receive your payment for this month, you will have to sell this restaurant.
No please! We need a little more time! Why did the payment increase by so much?
